HAARETZ: The Israeli Foreign Ministry on Wednesday dispatched a rescue team to the disaster-stricken country, saying later that three Israelis are unaccounted for in Haiti, among them the daughter of late Israeli peace activist Abie Nathan. The rescue team includes elite army corps engineers and medical corps ready to deploy field hospital, the Israeli consulate in New York reported.
IsraAID also planned to send a 12-man search-and-rescue team, which includes emergency medical staff.

Top Israel Defense Forces officers and delegates from relevant services convened for an emergency session first thing in the morning to discuss sending aide.

They also considered sending a field hospital, including doctors and medical equipment, as well as humanitarian aid such as food supplies and tents for those who have remained homeless.

The airport in Port-au-Prince has been closed since the 7.0 quake hit on Tuesday evening, but Israel decided to send the team with the hope that they would be able to land by the time they arrive.

Israeli ambassador to the Dominican Republic, Amos Radian, is scheduled to join the rescue team whose purpose is to gauge the best way Israel can assist with the crisis and decide on the most immediate needs.
