Discreetly, without cameras or trailing a claque of intrusive reporters, Israeli supermodel Bar Refaeli met with wounded IDF troops at Tel Hashomer Medical Center near Tel Aviv on Monday, Israel’s Walla News reported

It all started a few days ago, when one of the wounded warriors hung a note on the door of his ward, asking – in broken English – that the world-famous model stop by to cheer them up during their convalescence from wounds sustained during Operation Protective Edge.

“please, Bar Rafaeli come visite us! We need you :^)”, the soldiers wrote, from their ward at the center’s Sheba Hospital.

When the hospital staff posted the photo to Facebook, they added a note asking followers of their social networking page to share the post, in hopes that it would reach Refaeli.

“Along with as much as I don’t want to fight over a parking slot with ‘Bogie’ (Defense Minister Moshe Ya’alon) or (pop singer) Harel Skaat, in the wake of the many wounded in the military operation, I can’t disregard this request by my patients,” a hospital official wrote.

“The Head Wound Ward at Sheba is awaiting you; please visit us,” the note urged Rafaeli.

Not long after, the visit was arranged, under a (near) total veil of media secrecy, in order not to disturb the recuperating soldiers.

Refaeli spent several hours visiting with the soldiers in a number of wards, mostly in order to hear their personal stories, a source close to her contingent told Walla.
