A mobile intensive care ambulance service will begin soon in the ultra-Orthodox town of Betar Illit, United Torah Judaism MK Health Minister Ya’acov Litzman announced on Wednesday in the Knesset in response to a question by Shas MK Yoav Ben-Tzur. It will work out of the Magen David Adom station in Betar Illit.

Ben-Tzur asked the question following the death of a two-year-old toddler apparently due to sudden infant death syndrome. Residents had complained to Litzman that he might have been saved if a MICU had existed there.
