Medic who arrived to treat victims among those wounded in Kiryat Arba attack

Emanuel (Mannie) Fabian is The Times of Israel's military correspondent.

A man seriously wounded in the shooting attack near the West Bank settlement of Kiryat Arba earlier is a medic who arrived to treat the victims.

“While I was running to get medical equipment, I heard the medic I was with shout: ‘I’m injured, they shot at me,'” says Magen David Adom medic Yisrael Lior, who arrived with another medic to treat a father and son wounded by gunfire near Hebron.

“We took cover, and while I was providing life-saving treatment to the medic I was with, we called in additional forces,” he adds.

The seriously wounded medic and three other Israelis — one of whom has since died — were taken to hospitals in Jerusalem for treatment.
