A Swedish Red Cross official says Israeli soldiers have deliberately attacked ambulances during the offensive in Gaza. Christer Zettergren, the secretary-general of the Swedish chapter of the Red Cross, says seven ambulances operated by the Red Crescent were damaged last week in the fighting. Zettergren told reporters in Stockholm on Tuesday that the ambulances were fired upon by Israeli soldiers. He called the shootings "very deliberate."
