"We are deeply concerned about a recent attack on a Palestinian Red Crescent ambulance in Huwwara, which damaged the vehicle, caused delays in health care services and endangered the safety of healthcare workers and patients," ICRC said in a Facebook post.
"We remind all actors of their obligation to ensure that healthcare workers, their equipment and facilities are respected and protected," the committee added.
The Palestine Red Crescent Society had issued a statement at the time, confirming that it "considers with great concern the occupation forces' obstruction of medical personnel while performing their humanitarian duty, which puts the safety of civilians at risk."
