NEW YORK - Israel’s ambassador to the United Nations Danny Danon called on UN Secretary-General Ban Ki-Moon to publicly condemn the refusal of Palestinian Red Crescent medics to treat members of the Litman family who were attacked by Palestinians near Hebron on Friday afternoon.
Rabbi Ya’akov Litman and his 18-year-old son Netanel were both shot to death. Litman’s wife, Noa, three daughters and younger son were wounded by shrapnel and the resulting crash. They were on the way to a celebration for the their fourth daughter’s upcoming wedding.
According to Noa Litman, an ambulance from the Palestinian Red Crescent was on the scene before Magen David Adom arrived, but left without assisting them.
The Red Crescent denied the claims in a message on its website.
