Watch: The video of the incident
A video released on Thursday is sparking an outrage on Palestinian social media. It shows two Israeli Border Police officers stopping a Red Crescent ambulance near Hebron and forcing a young woman out of it. The Israel Police have identified the woman as a rioter who had thrown stones at security forces.
Palestinian media sources claimed the woman had been injured by a rubber bullet. The Red Crescent Deputy CEO has confirmed this.
“May G-d inflict revenge on them,” one Palestinian Facebook use wrote in response to the video. “This is what the Zionists are doing to us. They’re behaving like animals.”
The Israel Police said in a statement this isn’t the first time ambulances were used to help rioters flee the scene. “Unfortunately, this is a very common method,” they said.
