Targeting the Red Cross

Remember that incident during the Lebanon-Israel war which Charles got so excited about, in which he claimed that Red Cross workers had blown up their own ambulance and blamed Israel?

Presumably Charles is going to say the same thing happened here...

The international Red Cross on Sunday deplored the killing by the Israel Defense Forces of two "clearly marked" ambulance workers removing a Palestinian body from an earlier Israeli attack in the Gaza Strip.

The paramedics of the Palestine Red Crescent Society were wearing clearly marked fluorescent jackets and the flashing lights of their ambulance were visible from a great distance when they were hit by Israeli fire after dark on Friday evening, said the International Committee of the Red Cross (ICRC).

"The International Committee of the Red Cross is appalled by this failure to protect personnel engaged in emergency medical duties," a statement said. (Haaeretz)
