An IDF ambulance carrying people wounded in Syria was attacked by a group of locals outside the Druse village of Hurfeish on Monday morning. The group tried to block the vehicle in an attempt to check that it wasn’t carrying jihadi rebels, police said.
Northern District police said the villagers threw stones at the ambulance and that as the vehicle fled the scene it was chased by two carloads of locals, but that the crew of the ambulance managed to arrive safely at the police station in Ma’alot. The ambulance was then given a police escort to the Western Galilee Hospital in Nahariya.
No suspects have been arrested for attacking the ambulance, police said Monday.
