Israeli Medics attacked by Palestinians while responding to Palestinian accident near Jerusalem

Emergency crew responding on scene of accident with Palestinian youths injured, find themselves the target of violent mob, including the victims' families-
Upon reaching on the scene the crew began treating two young women who were hurt in the crash. But their efforts were interrupted with the arrival of the victims' family members, whose misguided attempts to defend the women quickly turned violent.

"Suddenly, a Volkswagen came to a screeching halt and three Arab youths emerged," said S., a paramedic. "They started to curse and tried to discern who hurt the women."


The crew's account of the accident failed to pacify the enraged men, who upped the verbal attack.


"They started cursing the IDF, Magen David Adom (Israeli medics) and everything affiliated with the state," S. said. "They called us 'maniacs and f***ing Jews.' We were shocked by how angry they were."


Meanwhile, more Palestinians gathered around them. When some began hitting the ambulance, the paramedic took charge of protecting his crew mates – a female driver and a 16-year-old male volunteer.

An emergency medical crew narrowly escaped being lynched this week while responding on the scene of an injurious car accident near Jerusalem.


The fateful call came on Tuesday; a car carrying a group of Palestinian youths from east Jerusalem swerved off the road and hit a safety barrier near the village of Hizma.


Upon reaching on the scene the crew began treating two young women who were hurt in the crash. But their efforts were interrupted with the arrival of the victims' family members, whose misguided attempts to defend the women quickly turned violent.


"Suddenly, a Volkswagen came to a screeching halt and three Arab youths emerged," said S., a paramedic. "They started to curse and tried to discern who hurt the women."


The crew's account of the accident failed to pacify the enraged men, who upped the verbal attack.


"They started cursing the IDF, Magen David Adom and everything affiliated with the state," S. said. "They called us 'maniacs and f***ing Jews.' We were shocked by how angry they were."


Meanwhile, more Palestinians gathered around them. When some began hitting the ambulance, the paramedic took charge of protecting his crew mates – a female driver and a 16-year-old male volunteer.


"I told them to lock themselves in the ambulance while I remained outside to deal with the situation," S. said, "The attackers cursed and pushed me. At one point more than ten people surrounded me and began punching me in the ribs and the head."


A security officer from the nearby settlement of Ma'ale Levona who was alerted to the scene said that the three youths started to hit S. once a Palestinian ambulance arrived.



"They said, 'our ambulance is here. Get out of here.' And then they began punching him with their fists," the officer, Shlomo Zaarur said.


The mob was dispersed with the arrival of the police, who arrested the three assailants, all of whom reside in east Jerusalem and possess Israeli identification cards. They were to be arraigned on Friday, and are expected to be indicted.


S., who has served as a paramedic for 12 years, was treated at the hospital was later discharged to recuperate at home.


"I've been through many things and treated many Arabs who were injured in accidents. But I've never experienced anything like this," he said. "It hurts. My job is to help and save people. It's really sad the way it ended."

  • No, this is impossible. The United Nations has made very clear that the Palestinians are the victims of hatred and irrational violence, not its perpetrators.

      And where do the majority of the Jewish immigrants throughout the early to mid 20th century come from? Europe.

      Much further afield than the neighbouring countries of Palestine which peoples had lived in for hundreds of years before they had to step aside while an imperialistic invasion of westerners decided to TAKE land.

      Yes. Jodan, Egypt share borders with Palestine, unlike Western and especially Eastern Europe where so many "Jews" emigrated from.

      It's like Africans invading Spain today because their ancestors once lived there over a thousand years ago, and saying "well the Spanish people belong to South France, Spain doesn't really exist".

  • Oh fucking Please!

    The US pays both sides,

    basic morality deems islam to be a fucking primitive ideology which is used to control people. Fucking isreali religious bullshit is a primitive ideology which is used to control people. Isreali's are perhaps greatly advanced than the Palestinians. So why are the Palestinians a threat to Isreal (the advanced)??

    I'M SICK OF OF IT!! I am sick of islam because of its ideology and I destest isreal because of theirs!

  • Those EMS crews are angels. Men and women who put their lives on the line every single day. Saving lives in every situation and place imaginable. F world views and opinions. They go into those areas because it's the politically correct thing to do. Because it'll look good on the news. Because, well - they're nice. Too nice. You can't be bloody nice in a war. Time to call it.

      SOPA use the same exact source (Ynet), but doesn't seems it bothers you, on the contrary...

      Go over some of my posts here in recent years and you will notice they contains all sort of different opinions and showing different sides, including the negative aspects of Jewish settlers,or Israel gov. or positive sides of Palestinians.

      The thing is that the typical narrow mind LiveLeaker expect the poster to choose one side only (can call it- "The 1 or 0" syndrom).

      Well, you should ask is there any person who is 'completely neutral', when it comes to conflicts and debates like these one....?

      Regarding your first claim- it is quite absurd. So you are saying that we must choose only one side, and stick with it, no matter what- if we try to observe and show more then one side we must be doing this on purpose...

      Iv'e already notice quite long ago that certain LLeakers (from both sides of the debate) tend to disrespect me since I don't feels I mu More..

    • @aydeo Im completely neutral.
      1)Cause I call a spade a spade.
      2)I dont really care.
      I dont know much about you but think if you are from one of the regions and have experienced the conflicts how can you be neutral and if you can be and are able to detach your self from these troubles and see it for what it is then you might benefit the current government in looking for new ways for peace.

      Strange, I never seen you make such an accusation regarding FUCK(ing) SOPA items, which at list 50% of them,if not more, are from the same source (YNET)...

      So when it suits you the source,items are all correct and true, when it doesn't suits you, the same source is suddenly "Propaganda overload!"

  • "I've been through many things and treated many Arabs who were injured in accidents. But I've never experienced anything like this,"

    Treat many arabs, or made them spy about their families for treatment, or treated many arabs killed and injured by Israeli soldiers/settlers demolishing homes, razing crops, and murdering innocent civilians.

      The medic is not a soldier, nor a settler, and in fact I'm quite sure most of the Arabs, including Palestinians, respect the Israeli medics, and apriciate them.

      Your poison haterd to Israelis made you more 'Palestinian' than regular Palestinians, and in fact with friends like you they don't need enemies lol!
