Druze threaten to continue blocking ambulances

Members of the Druze community in Israel’s north threatened Tuesday morning that they would continue preventing ambulances transporting wounded Syrian rebels to Israeli hospitals after one Syrian was killed Monday night in a Druze attack on an IDF ambulance. The Druze claim that Israel is caring for rebels from the al-Qaeda affiliated Nusra Front group, which recently killed some 20 ethic Druze in Syria. Many of Israel’s Druze have family and friends across the Golan border and have been calling on Israel to provide them humanitarian and even military aid over the last few weeks.
