Druse leaders representing the community on the Israeli side of the Golan Heights called on Israeli authorities Friday to release the youths who were arrested for allegedly taking part in the lynching of wounded Syrians who were being transported to hospital in the North earlier this week.

One Syrian was killed in the attack and another suffered severe injuries. A number of IDF soldiers who were accompanying the injured Syrians in the ambulance were also hurt in the fracas.

The leaders called for the release of the Druse youth during a meeting convened by senior clerics in the northern Golan town of Majdal Shams, not far from where the incident took place.
