A suspect accused of assaulting a doctor and a nurse at an Israeli hospital has cast a dark shadow over the humanitarian efforts to provide medical care to Arabs in need.

According to JNS, an Arab obtained a permit to enter Israel in order to escort a family member to Sheba Medical Center in Ramat Gan on Monday. In the hospital’s parking lot, he attempted to assault a doctor who had just finished her shift.

“I finished my shift and went out to the parking lot towards my car. A man I did not know quickly ran towards me, attacked me, and tried to lift my dress. I fought with him until he let go and ran off,” the victim said.

Israeli police swiftly launched a manhunt and managed to apprehend the assailant within the hospital compound thanks to security camera footage. As the investigation progressed, a nurse at the hospital came forward and reported being assaulted by the same suspect in June. She revealed that he had tried to enter her parked vehicle late at night and attack her while exposing himself.

The 44-year-old man now faces charges of attempted rape, violation of a legal order, and an indecent act by force or threats.

Unquestionably, these disturbing incidents raise serious questions about Israel’s vetting process for medical permits. They reveal a troubling lack of security that has allowed a predator to exploit the goodwill of the Israeli people and inflict unimaginable harm upon those dedicated to saving lives.
