Jerusalem - Ma'an - At least one Palestinian was killed and five others injured in a violent clash in the East Jerusalem neighborhood of Silwan on Saturday night.

According to residents and confirmed by an Israeli police spokesperson, for "security reasons" police prevented the Magen David Adom ambulance service from entering the area, which is under Israeli jurisdiction.

It was not immediately clear if the deceased Palestinian would have survived had he been evacuated to a hospital within a reasonable amount of time, although the injured were eventually removed from the scene by Red Crescent ambulances able to enter the area about two hours after the shooting.

The Magen David Adom service responded in a statement, saying it did everything in its power to treat those hurt at the scene, but were prevented from doing so by Israeli police, according to the Hebrew-language daily newspaper Yedioth Ahronoth.
