      No Star of David? No Volunteers


      Volunteers of the Magen David Adom (Red Star of David MDA) in Judea and Samaria announced, Friday, that they intend to stop showing up for ambulance duty after the Yom Kippur holiday because of the organization's removal of the red star of David from the ambulances. Arutz Sheva received an email distributed among the volunteers that said 12 ambulances were given new emblems and that a volunteer committee was formed in response, adding that no community was taking part in ambulance trips.

      MDA responded by saying it had not received any letter or other notification about changes in volunteer duty shifts.
