    International Civilians come under Fire in Ambulances

    March 29, 2002 [Ramallah]

    International civilians are trying to assist ambulance teams in Ramallah as they attempt to get to wounded and dying people. The ambulances of the International Red Cross, Red Crescent and U.N. have been prevented from moving in the city. The ambulances are now coming under fire and international civilians have been trying to act as human shields on board since 1400 today. Internationals will continue to ride aboard the ambulances in the hope that this may increase the chances of getting to those in need.

    The muka’ta has been under constant tank shelling and the electricity has been cut in the city since early this morning.
