Amid the historical tensions between Israel and Palestine, blood centers and hospitals have formed an alliance to share blood across borders.

The story of this unique partnership was featured in the August issue of American Society of Hematology.

The cooperation falls under the haunting reality of the acts of violence, terror, and warfare that citizens experience from the Israeli-Palestinian conflict.

Magen David Adom (MDA) manages the blood supply of Israel. MDA conducts lifesaving missions transporting blood to ailing citizens and troops in hospitals across war zones.
