“The organization’s leadership, directors, branch heads, volunteers and the entire United Hatzalah family, here in Israel and around the world, pray for the upliftment of his soul. We hope and aspire that Arbel, his partner Ariel, and all the remaining captives will soon return home to us, safe and sound.”

“On October 7, he went out to save lives and did not return,” Shmuel said. “When I tried to reach him on the radio this Shabbat, he didn’t answer. I was sure it was because he was busy tending to the wounded.”

In December, United Hatzalah CEO Eli Pollak urged the Red Cross to live up to its responsibilities as a medical organization, saying: “In addition to the fact that Dolev was kidnapped and your duty is to ensure well-being of all hostages, he is also a volunteer doctor and you have a special obligation to him.
