Israeli and Palestinian Authority firefighters worked together to rescue a child trapped in a home that had caught fire in Hebron last week.

The Coordination of Government Activities in the Territories reported last Monday on their Facebook page "following a fire that broke out today in Hebron, Israeli forces arrived at the site, including a COGAT officer, who was one of the first to arrive. They spotted a child inside the house and rushed to rescue him." 

COGAT, a unit of Israel's Ministry of Defense, added, "the child was given initial treatment on site and was then evacuated by the Red Crescent. Israeli and Palestinian firefighters cooperated to extinguish the fire."

Located in the southern West Bank in the Judea region, 80% of Hebron is under PA jurisdiction and 20% under Israeli jurisdiction.
