Israeli Policewoman Treats Jerusalem Terrorist 30 Days after Her Father Was Killed by Palestinian Stone-Throwers
Israel Police Captain Maya Stolero, daughter of Alexander Levlovich – killed on the eve of Rosh Hashanah last month, when his car was pummeled by rock-throwing Palestinians – administered first aid to a terrorist mere weeks after burying her father, Israeli news website Walla reported on Monday.
The 38-year-old police officer was faced with having to treat a 15-year-old Arab girl who was shot in the leg by Israeli security services after stabbing a Border Police officer. Stolero, a 20-year veteran of the Israel Police, arrived on the scene of the attack almost immediately, because it took place across from the Jerusalem police headquarters, near the Ammunition Hill light-rail stop.
According to Walla, Stolero told members of the foreign press that she waited until the Border Police officer was evacuated to the hospital before turning her medical attention to the terrorist.
“I saw that she needed medical assistance, and I did everything I could,” Stolero told reporters. “At that moment, I set aside my personal pain.”
The “personal pain” she was referring to – the death of her father at the hands of Palestinian terrorists – was compounded by the fact that the date of the terrorist attack happened to coincide with the end of the 30-day mourning period observed by Jews after the burial of a parent, spouse, sibling or child.
Levlovitch, 64, died on September 14, when he was driving home to Jerusalem from a Jewish New Year’s eve dinner and his car was pelted with stones. Police later determined that the attack caused him to lose control of the vehicle and hit an electricity pole, leading to his death.
As the first fatality in the current terror wave, he has come to represent the start of what some Palestinians are calling the “third intifada.”
