A 7-year-old girl was bitten by a snake this evening (Monday), in a Kibbutz in the Jordan Valley Regional Council. Her condition was termed moderate.

MDA medics and paramedics administered initial treatment upon arrival at the scene and evacuated the girl to the Poriya hospital in Tiberias.

Last month a 22-year-old man was bitten by a snake hiding among the onions in a supermarket in the city of Modi'in. He was also moderately wounded.

The man went to the "Terem" emergency clinic in Modi'in where he was given initial treatment to stabilize his condition. MDA medics then evacuated him to the Sha'are Tzedek hospital in Jerusalem.
