Where is Magen David Adom in Judea and Samaria? David HaIvri responds.


Latest Arutz 7 Ad for Magen David Adom in Judea and Samaria.


Nothing has changed. MD"A signed an agreement with the Palestinian Red Cercent in which they recognized the pre 1967 lines as an international boarder and the area east of that occupied Palestinian territory. MD"A continues to operate the stations on the map that they posted. In all there are about 120 ambulances in Judea and Samaria, MD"A operates about half. The other half are operated privately by the regional municipalities. All of the ambulances operated by the municipalities are leased out from md"a second hand that would have been put in emergency storage or sold as used. The palaces that the municipalities are operating are the more isolated areas like Elon Moreh, Itamar, Har Bracha and Yitzhar. Those places are much further  away from hospitals, an hour plus drive with no traffic and also considered more of a security risk. According to md"a's own standard only bullet protected ambulances are allowed to reach these locations. The municipalities do not have the resources to provide 60 bullet protected ambulances so most of the ones used in this area are both run down and unprotected. 

Bottom line, yes, md"a is operating in some locations in Judea and Samaria, but, not in all locations.

Dear David, amv"sh

Please clarify.  Thanks.

Is Magen Dovid Adom active in the Yishuvim as they present themselves in the ads? Has their position changed at all over time?

If that is the case, Is there still a need for other emergency organizations like Hatzala in Yesha? Where has Hatzala filled in or other first response teams filled in where MDA has left a void. 

Is the only problem with MDA that they signed an international agreement stating that Judea and Samaria is occupied Palestinian territory?

Recently you wrote an OP ed that was critical of  Magen David Adom.  What caused Arutz7 to radically change their position regarding Magen David Adom to the extent that they sent out this advertisement?  Usually Arutz 7 never sends out advertisements with their news yet they made an exception with Magen David Adom. Usually advertisements are sent separate with promotions.  Are your concerns addressed to your satisfaction.
