  • Vicinity of Beitar Ilit, located just west of Gush Etzion: The IDF reports that several Israeli vehicles once again have come under rock attack by roadside Arabs near the village of Husan (an Arabic name that translates to goodness and beauty - yes! - according to the dictionary and Wikipedia).
Yehudit writes: These reports are translated and publicized by Hatzalah Yehudah and Shomron with the clearance and confirmation of the IDF.  Hatzalah Yehudah and Shomron is a voluntary emergency medical organization with over 500 volunteer doctors, paramedics, medics who are on call 24/7 and work along with the IDF, 669 IAF Airborn Rescue, the security officers and personal throughout Yesha and the Jordan Valley, and with MDA. We, the volunteers of Hatzalah Yehudah and Shomron go out to rescue anyone who needs our emergency medical assistance; including civilians, military and Arabs also those within the PA territories. (with IDF presence) To us a life is precious and we go out at risk leaving home and family or stopping on the road to rescue anyone in need.
