Activist: Ambulance stopped by soldiers in Beit Ummar

Jan. 10, 2013 3:03 P.M. (Updated: Jan. 11, 2013 1:43 P.M.)
HEBRON (Ma'an) -- Israeli forces blocked the entrance to southern West Bank town Beit Ummar on Thursday morning, preventing an ambulance from leaving, a local activist said.

The ambulance officer informed the soldiers that the Red Crescent vehicle was taking a woman in labor and another patient to hospital in Hebron, popular committee spokesman Muhammad Ayad Awad said.

The Red Cross and the Palestinian military liaison called Israeli officials to press for the ambulance's passage.

An Israeli military spokeswoman said the entrance was temporarily closed due to heavy snowfall, but while soldiers were clearing snow, Palestinians hurled rocks at them.
