On July 1, terrorists opened fire on the car of a Jewish family, killing Rabbi Miki Mark and injuring his wife and two children. A Palestinian man on the scene rescued the surviving family members - and in the wake of his heroic actions, was fired from his job. Now, The Times of Israel reports that an Israeli leader is helping the hero find a new job:

A Palestinian man who saved the children of a West Bank rabbi after a deadly terror attack that killed him has been fired from his job, according to the head of Har Hevron Regional Council.

In a Facebook post on Sunday, Yochai Damari said that the man is now unemployed due to Palestinian opposition to his actions and should be assisted by Israel.

“I met with him and he asked me to help remove any obstacle preventing him from receiving a work permit,” Damari wrote. Such a permit would allow the man to obtain employment inside Israel.

Rabbi Miki Mark was murdered in the July 1 shooting, his wife Chava was seriously injured, and their two teenage children were also hurt. The Palestinian rescuer and his wife, residents of the Hebron area, helped the surviving members of the Mark family escape their overturned vehicle and administered first aid until first responders arrived at the scene.

Now, Damari wrote, Israel owes it to the couple to help them find work...
