Netanyahu appeals to Druze leaders to restore calm

Prime Minister Binyamin Netanyahu early Tuesday denounced as “extremely grave” Druze mob attacks Monday on two IDF ambulances transporting injured Syrian rebel fighters to hospital. He warned that no one would be allowed "to take the law into his own hands or interfere with the IDF’s duties." The perpetrators would be brought to justice, he said, and called on Druze leaders to act expeditiously to calm tempers.  Chief of Staff Lt. Gen. Gady Eisenkott said it was “intolerable to see Israeli citizens attacking IDF soldiers and wounded individuals.” One of the injured Syrians died after the mob attack on the Golan; the second is in critical condition.
