Shabbat morning at 6:20am Israel was targeted by Hamas terrorists who crossed its border, infiltrating 25 towns, resulting in many killed, people kidnapped, and hundreds injured. At the same time, thousands of rockets were launched into Israel, reaching Tel Aviv and Jerusalem. A state of war has been declared by Israel's Defense Minister. In response, United Hatzalah is mobilizing all 7000 of its volunteers. Approximately 100 rescue vehicles, ambulances, and mobile intensive care units, as well as armored vests, helmets, and a significant amount of medical equipment and personnel, were dispatched from the north and center to different areas in the south. The medevac helicopters of United Hatzalah and Lahak Aviation evacuated some of the injured to hospitals in central Israel and United Hatzalah teams scattered across southern Israel provided initial treatment to hundreds of victims with varying degrees of injury In this state of emergency - unlike anything Israel has experienced since the Yom Kippur War - Israel needs urgent support. We are launching an emergency appeal to raise funds for desperately needed supplies to provide our volunteers the equipment they need to save lives and the protective equipment to keep themselves safe. The goal of the campaign is to equip United Hatzalah volunteers with protective vests and helmets, oxygen tanks, defibrillators, trauma bandages and tourniquets.
