While at Ben-Gurion University today I chanced to see two big IDF helicopters landing at Soroka hospital, which is right across the street.
Here above is the landing.
And then the take-off.
I don't know where the wounded came from; there was no word of any incident in the news.
The helipad is just a big fenced-in patch of grass in between hospital buildings.
You can see the windsock on the roof.
During the 50 days of fighting with Gaza last summer this was, sadly, a very busy place.
UPDATE: I see now some statistics from the director of the hospital:
During Operation Protective Edge, as in previous rounds of fighting in the South, Soroka Medical Center was at the forefront of treating the wounded. Life-saving teams at Soroka cared for the majority of the soldiers wounded during the operation. In the 50 days of warfare, 1,263 casualties received treatment, among them 777 soldiers and 486 civilians, of whom 53 were seriously injured..
There were more than 60 helicopter landings on the hospital's helipad, evacuating the wounded from the Gaza Strip.
