(Israel Hayom/Exclusive to Israeli Ambassador to the United Nations Danny Danon has asked U.N. Secretary General Ban Ki-moon to publicly condemn the Palestinian Red Crescent organization after one of its ambulances that was near the site of Friday’s shooting attack near Otniel, which left Rabbi Ya’akov Litman and his son Netanel dead, failed to stop and treat the wounded Israeli Jews.

“An ambulance that doesn’t treat wounded civilians is complicit in terrorism. We’re talking about egregiously ignoring all universal moral values and contempt for human life,” Danon wrote to Ban.

Danon added that an ambulance not treating wounded people was a direct violation of international law.
