The Magen David Adom emergency and rescue service filed a complaint with police after a swastika was painted on one of its ambulances in Tel Aviv on Friday.

Medics, who were responding to a call on HaHaganah Street in the city, found the Nazi symbol sprayed over the Jewish Star of David on the side of the vehicle.

They then filed a complaint to police.

“I received a call about a woman who was feeling unwell,” said MDA Senior EMT Leonid Pisman. “I arrived at the address and went together with my team to provide medical assistance. When we returned to the ambulance with the patient, we were shocked to find a swastika sprayed over the Magen David. We evacuated the patient to hospital for further treatment and went to the police station to report the incident. I cannot believe that such an incident could occur. It’s shocking!”

“Whoever did this disgusting thing knows exactly the meaning of their actions and this should be treated with all seriousness and zero tolerance,” said MDA Director Eli Bin.
