Thieves broke into Yad Sarah’s Kiryat Arba branch late last week and stole the locked safe that contained hundreds of shekels of deposit money received for the borrowing of medical equipment.

The thieves sawed off one metal bar on a window and got inside.

“How could them not be ashamed to do it?” hased Haya Niyar, the branch director. “We help everybody and loan some 500 pieces of medical equipment ever year.”

The branch nevertheless is continuing its regular activities as the police search for the lawbreakers.
