Red Cross: IDF hit clearly marked ambulance workers
By The Associated Press
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.
"The individuals concerned and their means of transport were clearly marked with a distinctive emblem conferring the protection of the Geneva Conventions [on the conduct of warfare]," continued the same statement.

I took a look at those comments on the story.
I had no idea that the Pro-Israel Jewish community was so damned bloodthirsty.
I'm finding it harder every day to understand why Israel isn't on the "Axies of Evil" list.
