Settlers attack Palestinian ambulance, 3 medics injured

SALFIT (Ma'an) -- Three Palestinian medics were injured on Friday as Israeli settlers attacked an ambulance travelling from Nablus to Salfit, medical staff said.

Dr. Issa al-Imla from the Salfit governmental hospital told Ma'an that Dr. Samel al-Att, nurse Murad al-Qatuni, and anesthetist Samer Habash were injured when settlers threw rock at the ambulance near Kfar Tappuah settlement in eastern Salfit.

The ambulance was damaged and suffered a flat tire after the driver was forced off the main road by the stone-throwing.

Hundreds of Israeli settlers have carried out multiple attacks on Palestinian homes and vehicles since Thursday night in the aftermath of an earlier shooting which killed two settlers near Nablus.

Another ambulance was damaged by settlers in Nablus overnight, as Palestinian vehicles were set ablaze in both Nablus and Ramallah.

The ambulance was reportedly en-route to aid Palestinians suffering from tear-gas inhalation when settlers attacked it, damaging the windshield.

The occupied West Bank, especially the Nablus area, has been on virtual lock down since Eitam and Naama Henkin, both in their 30s, were shot by suspected Palestinian gunmen while driving on Thursday night between the illegal settlements of Itamar and Elon More.

Israeli settlers living in the occupied West Bank are under the jurisdiction of Israeli authorities who rarely intervene to stop attacks on Palestinian residents and their property.

For the record:
One day earlier Palestinian terrorists executed a mother and father in front of their children. Ages 9 years, 5 years and 4 months.
Just a little context of the situation.
Peace on earth!
The nation of Israel lives!

If Israel wants peace (which I doubt) the war criminal settlers should leave Palestine!

"Am Israel Chai", isn't that what they said when they lynched the Eritrean refugee?
