Police stated that the ambulance driver “was seen blocking the path of the attacked vehicle and allowing the crowd to storm and attack the vehicle with stones-putting the driver’s life at a real risk.”

After being rescued by IDF forces, the Israeli driver recalled the moments of horror. He said that he felt the situation was life-threatening and managed to escape miraculously. “I returned from shopping,” he said. “The violent riot began in the center of Huwara. Luckily, I managed to escape and return home safely. I saw death in their eyes, I was almost lynched.”
