When a Palestinian terrorist began shooting at Israelis frequenting the Max Brenner chocolate bar at Tel Aviv’s Sarona Market last week, Magen David Adom (MDA) received an emergency call and immediately dispatched many units.

The selfless volunteers – medics, paramedics and others – interrupted whatever they were doing and ran to save lives.

Unfortunately, four people in the vicinity were shot dead, and many more were wounded – some severely. A significant number, however, were saved thanks to MDA’s immediate response.

Watch this short video summarizing MDA’s behind-the-scenes lifesaving activities and meet some of their dedicated people.
