Medics forced to take cover while treating patient as new attack triggers alarm

Judah Ari Gross is The Times of Israel's military correspondent.

Medics who were treating people struck by a rocket that hit Holon say they were forced to take cover with their patients as a fresh attack triggered additional sirens in the city.

“As we got close to the scene, we saw a bus and number of cars on fire. A woman in her 30s was lying on the ground, not moving. She was fully conscious and sustained shrapnel wounds to her upper body. We began treating her, giving her life-saving care, when another siren began,” the medic Regina Mizrahi says.

“We immediately ran with the patient, who was in a stretcher, to a safe place under a building. Once the sirens ended and we could leave, we returned to the road, put her in the ambulance and took her to the hospital in stable condition,” she says.
