Israel Charged with Targeting Palestinian Medical Teams

The Palestinian Red Crescent Society has charged Israel with launching hundreds of attacks against Palestinian medical teams in 2009.

The aid group, also known as PRCS, said that the Israeli troops fired 15 times at ambulances in the West Bank and Gaza last year, killing one medical worker and wounding 10 more.

The PRCS also said that the Israeli troops obstructed its teams on 440 occasions in what the society denounced as "a blatant violation of international law."

The group also charged the Israeli army with the use of internationally banned phosphorus bombs in an attack on one of its headquarters during the war on Gaza.

More than 1,400 Palestinians, including hundreds of women and children, were killed in a three-week onslaught Israel launched against the Gaza Strip in December 27, 2008.

The 22-day offensive reduced hundreds of houses into debris, leveled tens of schools and mosques and devastated a huge part of the impoverished territory’s infrastructure.
