Wave of arrests in Druse attacks on IDF ambulances, mob killing of Syrian national

Northern District police carried out a wave of arrests overnight Tuesday of suspects in two attacks on IDF ambulances on Monday, including an incident that night in which a wounded Syrian national was murdered by a mob outside Neve Atib near Majdal Shams in the Golan Heights.

Although there is still a gag order on the investigation, it can be reported that half of the suspects are from Monday night’s incident, during which around 100-150 or more residents of Majdal Shams supposedly carried out a well-planned ambush on an IDF ambulance, attacking and killing one of the two Syrians on board and seriously wounding the other, outside the entrance to Neve Atib.

It is believed that the mob had prior knowledge that the ambulance was carrying Syrian nationals and that they may have been tipped off by a Druse soldier.
