The soldiers attempt to pull people at the back of the ambulance out onto the street, and after verbal and physical confrontations, the soldiers jumped into the ambulance and pulled out two Palestinians.
A witness told Ma’an that he saw Israeli soldiers forcing two teenage girls out of the ambulance at gunpoint.
He added that Israeli female soldiers handcuffed the girls and detained them. The identities of the girls remained unknown.
