Opinion | Injured? Arrive at the checkpoint, and we'll manage Israel today


The settlers have been accustomed for years to commercial companies "not leading / providing service in the territories", because "these are the procedures" • Now the IDF is also abandoning fighters because they live in Judea and Samaria?

This week, Carmela Menashe (here) revealed that the IDF refuses to provide transportation for medical treatment to those who were injured while on duty and live in Judea and Samaria.

This discrimination, against the background of place of residence, stems from the fact that the IDF sends a civilian taxi to pick up the wounded soldier, and according to the procedures, a civilian trip across the Green Line requires escorting weapons. Just cancel the trip.

But the IDF will not abandon its wounded soldiers beyond enemy lines. No, no. Not our IDF.

The Israel Defense Forces will be happy to provide the service it is committed to, if only the wounded would be able to catch rides to the nearest checkpoint, where a taxi will already be waiting for him.

Reasonable, overall.

That is, regular and reserve soldiers who were wounded while fighting in the IDF are promiscuous because they live in Judea and Samaria.

To get along.


Because the taxi driver, if he is injured, God forbid, will be recognized as an IDF wounded man, and then he will have to be paid. But the soldier's mother, who will have to take a few days off until her son recovers and recovers, To compensate for the days you lose, because the IDF is busy taking care of itself instead of taking care of its soldiers.

Moreover, the reservist who went to the army was not accompanied by a weapon, right?

of course not.

But here the IDF has no problem. They will come, they will fight, they will be wounded, they will shed blood. They are motivated and ideological anyway, no? Then they will come. Drive them to the hospital.

How twisted. How ridiculous. The settlers have known this excuse of "these are the procedures" for years, when commercial companies announced that they "do not lead / provide service in the territories", because these are the procedures. Until they realized it was illegal. That today it is forbidden to discriminate against a person because he lives in Judea and Samaria. So today some companies do not discriminate, and some only add a few tens of shekels to the cost of the arrival of the technician or carrier, and the settlers are silent,

But the IDF ?! There is no limit? After all, the fact that there is danger to taxi drivers is because of the army. Because it does not do its job properly. Or in a language he will understand: the goal is to eliminate the threat to taxi drivers, who transport wounded soldiers living in Judea and Samaria. Until he does, that's his problem. To find a solution. Shikim Field Hospital in Ofra. Send to transport the wounded APC. Or simply find a taxi driver armed settler. In case people find it hard this complex task - the system will contact. Names and telephone numbers of five such drivers will be waiting for him there.

Response to the "soldiers for security reasons And the civilians in the IDF service, the instructions for vehicles, including taxis in the IDF service, which move beyond the Green Line, require an armed escort.To".
