United Hatzalah volunteers rushed to the scene as fast as they could.

Muslim ambucycle EMT Abid Bakir who lives in East Jerusalem picked up Holon volunteer Eliyahu Chaim Maimon who is a yeshiva student in the Old City. The pair of volunteers rushed to the scene together, in order to help save lives and treat the injured police officers.

President and Founder of United Hatzalah Eli Beer spoke about the incident: “Both officers are in stable condition having sustained only moderate injuries. The officers were transported to Hadassah Har Hatzofim Hospital for further treatment and assessment. I want to thank these volunteers who heroically raced to the scene together with one goal in mind, to save lives. Focusing on what unites us and not what divides us.”
