On Wednesday afternoon, Israeli Border Police on routine patrol near Hebron identified a Palestinian boy lying unconscious on the floor. A police officer and a paramedic team quickly ran to the boy, while reporting the incident and calling for additional medical help.

Early examination of the boy showed that he was not breathing and had no pulse. The border guards worked to resuscitate him by performing CPR, while removing obstacles in his mouth that had caused him to suffocate. The police continued their lifesaving efforts for several minutes until the arrival of a Red Crescent medical team. The boy was then brought to a local hospital.

A spokesperson for the Border Guard told Tazpit News Agency that the Palestinian boy had been electrocuted. However, thanks to the efforts of the policemen in those first minutes, his life was saved.

  • I am proud of the Israeli border patrol who saved the life of a Palestinian boy.
    Are the leftist media going to promulgate that little incident even one tenth as much as they advertise repeatedly when Israeli self-defense causes the unintended death of civilians?
