A Magen David Adom (MDA) worker spat on a picture of Jesus and the Virgin Mary in the home of Christians to whom he was administering coronavirus tests, according to Ynet.

The incident was captured on security camera footage in which the man can be seen taking his protective gear off to spit on the photo three times in a row, BBC News reported. 
When challenged by the owner of the house, the medic reportedly said that "the Torah says to turn away idolatry," before complaining to the tenant that he is not wearing a mask. 

The emergency medical organization investigated the incident and ultimately decided that the employee was "unworthy of representing the organization," dismissing the employee immediately.

MDA asserted that in the organization, "people of all religions work shoulder to shoulder." 
In a tweet, MDA's Senior Management "strongly condemned" the incident, emphasizing that it works with, and employs, people of "all sectors of society."
