A group of extremist illegal Israeli colonists attacked, Sunday, a Palestinian ambulance while rushing to a patient in Hebron city, in the southern part of the occupied West Bank, causing damage.

The Palestinian Red Crescent Society (PRCS) has reported that it received a call from a family of a patient in Tal Romeida neighborhood, in Hebron city, and headed towards the Shuhada Street, after coordinating the ambulance’s passage through the closed Shuhada Street.

It added that, once the ambulance reached the Shuhada Street, the illegal settlers started throwing stones at it, and obstructed the road, although it was sounding its siren and trying to reach the patient.

Eid Abu Monshar, a medic with the PRCS, said the Israeli assailants saw the ambulance rushing to the patient, yet, started throwing stones at it.

Mohammad Zghayyar, a spokesperson with the Youth Coalition against Settlements in Hebron, said that the coalition activists, along with internationals, witnessed at least fifteen illegal Israeli colonialist settlers attacking the ambulance and closing the road.

He added that coalition members started filming the attacked, before the soldiers assaulted them and forced them away.
