Israeli soldiers saved the life of a Palestinian baby, evacuating the 10-day-old infant for hospital treatment on Monday, Ynet reported.

The baby girl’s mother came to the soldiers from a village near Halamish in the West Bank, where they were stationed, and the soldiers immediately called their battalion’s physician.

“The baby suffered from severe respiratory distress and was vomiting,” said Lieutenant Colonel Dr. Michael Findlar. “We immediately began administering first aid and stabilized her condition.”

“This was the third such incident in two weeks,” Findlar added. “[Palestinians] know we have a regimental infirmary and a military ambulance. Last time, one of the paramedics on guard treated a young girl suffering from meningitis, and during the third incident, I treated a girl who had severe jaundice. In both incidents, the patients were transferred to an Israeli hospital for additional medical care.”
