Since the beginning of the war, the soldiers of Unit 669 (Special Tactics Rescue), medical teams and Israeli Air Force Transport Helicopter squadrons have been operating under fire, deep in the Gaza Strip to rescue and provide medical treatment to IDF soldiers.

So far, IDF infantry and special forces units have carried out 150 ground and rescue operations, evacuating 260 wounded soldiers to Israeli hospitals.

The mobile teams of Unit 669 provide primary medical care and rescue soldiers from inside the Gaza Strip. The teams evacuate the wounded from the area and join the teams that are situated at different points, which shortens response times and saves lives.

Attached is a video from inside a helicopter during the evacuation of four injured soldiers from inside the Gaza Strip by Unit 669:
