The Israel Defense Forces landed in the Philippines this week to provide humanitarian aid and relief to typhoon survivors. The troops immediately went to work constructing a field hospital in hard-hit Cebu.

This morning, aid teams reported that the first baby had been born in the field hospital. The grateful parents named the baby “Israel.”

God bless the IDF and everyone in the Philippines providing aid and comfort to Typhoon Haiyan survivors.
