Syrian state media praise Druse attack on IDF ambulance

Syrian state media praised Druse villagers in the Israeli-occupied Golan Heights on Tuesday for attacking an Israeli military ambulance they said was carrying two insurgents from a group fighting President Bashar Assad.
The Israeli army said one of the men in the ambulance was killed as a result of the attack it described as a lynching.
The incident in the Golan village of Majdal Shams overlooking Syrian territory was the second attack by Druse on an Israeli army ambulance in less than 24 hours.
It reflected rising Druse agitation over what the community sees as Israel's failure to help embattled Druse brethren in Syria while offering medical aid to Syrian civilians and combatants who include anti-Assad fighters.
