Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu on Monday condemned the attack on an IDF ambulance by Israel Druse in the Golan Heights, declaring that "nobody can take the law into their own hands, and no body can disrupt the missions of IDF soldiers."

A mob outside the Druse village of Majdal Shams had attacked an ambulance carrying two Syrians brought into Israel for medical treatment on Monday, killing one and leaving the second badly wounded.

Netanyahu vowed to "bring the lawbreakers to justice" and called on the the leaders of the Druse community to "act immediately and calm spirits."
