The government of the UAE, having seen the images of Lebanese ambulances being targeted and destroyed, thought a gift of 12 new ones was a good idea.
So off they shipped them in a cargo plane all the way to Damascus - the mighty bastion of Arab resistance allegedly.
And from there across the border to the Bekaa valley - home to some of the best wine you'd ever enjoy.
And up the mountain side on the last patent artery into the stricken capital, a gorgeous view of the cultivated valley by the way.
And then... KABOOM. Air strike hit the convoy.
You see, ambulances are dangerous things.
They get in the way of murder.
