Palestinians have taken to defacing and destroying Magen David Adom (MDA) ambulances, according to the Muqata blog.

“In what has become a daily occurrence, Palestinians are routinely throwing rocks at Magen David Adom ambulances,  smashing windshields and seriously endangering the MDA medical crews,” the blog writes.

The largely volunteer MDA emergency medical service treats the sick and wounded indiscriminately and without bias.

For more on MDA see this The Algemeiner interview with Yoni Yagodovsky, director of international affairs .

Pictures of damage caused in the attacks on MDA ambulances can be viewed below.

  • I heard a local helicopter air ambulance transmit “code 77 yellow” on the
    radio. Nothing else, that’s all the transmission said. The aircraft is a Eurocopter AS350B3 Astar.. I’m an EMT-I and have never heard this.
    We don’t really use codes for patients’ conditions. There is a
    thing called “EMD,” but those codes are different format.
    I work at the facility where the crew is based out of, so I guess I’ll ask them this weekend when I work. I’ll post more if
    I find out..

  • Halloof

    It would be nice to know where they these incidents occur: in the west Bank or in Jerusalem or elsewhere.

  • Joel

    Should Israelis stone 10 red crescent ambulances for every Israeli ambulance stoned?

  • E Pluribus Beagle

    Stop sending them. They clearly don’t want your services. Let them fend for themselves.

  • I think that MDA should stop helping Palestinians for a week or two and it will teach them a lesson.
