Israel sends team to Haiti....

Israel helps out in every humanitarian crisis....
A team comprised of Foreign Ministry, Home Front Command and the IDF Medical Corps personnel left for Haiti Wednesday noon after the island suffered a devastating 7.0-magnitude earthquake, the worst in 200 years.

Led by Daniel Saban, head of ministry's Latin America department, the delegation will also include members of the IDF Search and Rescue Unit. The IDF Medical Corps plans to set up a field hospital in Haiti.

Brig. -Gen. Shalom Ben Aryeh, commander of the Home Front Command's Search and Rescue teams, said the contingent consists of 50 IDF officers trained in rescue operations as well as giving emergency medical treatment.

I was excited to see this item. Wonder how widely it will be reported. I fear not very widely. Thank you for bringing it to my attention.
