A friend of mine asked me recently about the controversy with respect to Israel and difficulty of ambulances working in Palestinian territories. The first few links that I found are:
- The Palestinian use of ambulances and medical materials for terror, published by Israel Ministry of Foreign Affairs (MFA) on December 22nd, 2003
- A LiveLeak video showing use of ambulances
I am not sure how to verify the authenticity of the video, but I don’t see a reason to question the MFA. It would be interesting to look through an up-to-date account of the situation.
I am not making any conclusive statements on whether Israeli policies and/or implementation are justified as I do not have enough information to have a strong position on the subject. However, as I do not have a reason to, I am going to err on the side of Israel.
If you have more information, please post in the comments section.
