MDA Threatens to Limit Services in Yesha

Magen David Adom needs your support. Please donate if you can.
(IsraelNN.com) Magen David Adom Director-General Avi Zohar explains that due to the serious fiscal crisis, the emergency medical service will be forced to close services in many Yesha (Judea, Samaria, & Gaza) areas, as well as in certain Negev municipalities.

Zohar explains that advanced life support paramedic ambulances in communities including Ariel and Ofrah would be cut if the badly needed funds are not handed over to MDA. MDA officials add that the government must handover 3.7 million shekels or the EMS provider will have no alternative but to reduce services in outlying communities in Yesha and southern Israel.
