The Arab and his family lived with his friend for quite a while. He had cooperated with the Israeli security forces, feeding them information over an extended time. When he was 'discovered' they abandoned him. The 'friend' who refused to leave him to his fate, and instead saved his life, was Noam Arnon; and the place was Hevron.
