The Magen David Adom ambulance service says a fourth person was injured in Hamas’s anti-tank guided missile attack on an Israeli jeep north of the Gaza border.
Medics say the fourth casualty is a man in his 40s who sustained moderate wounds from shrapnel in the missile strike.
One person was killed in the attack, another was seriously injured and a third was also moderately wounded, medics say.
“This was a difficult event. We arrived to casualties on the ground while sirens and continued fire were heard in the background. The victims suffered from injuries from the blast and shrapnel. We gave them treatment while protecting them and ourselves,” MDA medic Ravit Martinez says. “After providing emergency critical care in the field, we were forced to flee the area from the missile and mortar fire, evacuating the victims to a safe area and there with the help of a Magen David Adom doctor and other MDA medics we took them to the hospital.”
