Settlers attack Palestinian ambulance in al-Khalil

Fanatic Jewish settlers at dawn Saturday attacked a Palestinian ambulance car of the Palestinian Red Crescent Society in al-Shuhada Street at the Old City of al-Khalil.

The PIC reporter said that a group of extremist settlers of Beit Romano and Beit Hadassah settlement outposts attacked the ambulance car that was summoned to transfer a Palestinian sick child, suffering a serious health condition, to hospital.

The settlers stopped the ambulance and assaulted the driver from the window and hit the car with iron pipes and guns, eyewitnesses said.

The PIC reporter added that the attacking process lasted for 35 minutes. Meanwhile, the sick child had to wait until the ambulance was allowed to pass and access his home after the intervention of the Red Crescent Society.
