The Israel Medical Association immediately suspended its doctors’ sanctions at Yoseftal Hospital in Eilat and at Soroka University Medical Center in Beersheba after hearing of the wounded from the terror attacks at around noon on Thursday.

Yoseftal, a small hospital owned by Clalit Health Services, bore the brunt of treating the wounded, who totaled 33. Seven of them were flown out to Soroka for more intensive treatment, but most of the wounded were moderately and lightly hurt, said the Beersheba hospital director, Dr. Michael Scherf.

Most of the wounds resulted from gunshots, but two children aged four and seven were lightly injured from glass fragments during the bus attack and treated at Yoseftal.
