One ISIL Takfiri Terrorist Killed in Druze Attack on IDF AmbulanceSalem-News.com Foreign Affairs
Over the last two years, Israel has provided medical care to hundreds of ISIL terrorists from Syria... Druze called on Israel to stop treating injured fighters.
(SALEM, Ore.) - 150 demonstrators from the Druze community attacked an Israeli military ambulance carrying injured Syrians, killing one person, police said.
The ambulance carrying two injured Syrian Takfiri alleged terrorists was attacked near the Druze town of Majdal Shams in the southern foothills of Jabal al-Shaykh mountain (Mt. Hermon), north of the Golan Heights.
According to reports, the attack worsened the condition of the wounded Syrians, and one of them succumbed to injuries as they were being airlifted to the Rambam Medical Center in Haifa.
Two Israeli troops also suffered slight injuries in the attack and were taken to the Ziv Medical Center in Safed.
The Druze protesters have also called for a protest outside the Galilee Medical Center in Nahariya, where the Tel Aviv regime is said to be treating other wounded terrorists.
Over the last two years, Israel has provided medical care to hundreds of Syrians, including fighters, usually transferred from the ceasefire line with the Golan Heights in military ambulances, mainly to two hospitals in the north.
The Druze accuse rebels of committing atrocities against their community in Syria and have called on Israel to stop treating injured fighters. Instead, they call on the government to protect Syrian Druze and some even want Israel to provide them with weapons and air support against the advances of al-Qaeda's branch in Syria, the Nusra Front.
Syrian TV called the Druze protesters "our heroic countrymen." The hospital said Syrian wounded hospitalized in Israel have always been under security, but so far the security guards' job was to ensure the wounded did not try to leave the hospital, rather than protect them from outside threats.
In response to the incident, the IDF said it would not stop treating wounded Syrians, and plans to increase the security around the ambulance transports.
