IDF fired warning shots at French diplomatic convoy?

The French foreign ministry complained on Wednesday night that the IDF fired on a car carrying its Jerusalem consul general back from a 'fact-finding mission' in Gaza, and detained the car for six hours at a crossing point.
Israeli soldiers fired two rounds of warning shots at a diplomatic convoy that included the French consul general in Jerusalem, the French Foreign Ministry said on Wednesday.

The ministry said that the convoy was blocked by Israeli authorities for more than six hours on Tuesday as it tried to leave the Gaza Strip after an evaluation mission amid an edgy cease-fire.

It was not immediately clear when the shots were fired.

The ministry said at a news briefing that France protested the "unacceptable incident," and summoned the Israeli ambassador.
How quickly they forget.

I am sure there is another side to this story. It probably sounds like this. (And Gaza is much worse than Beit El these days).

And the French expect Israel to do what when they send their diplomats into a war zone?

Like they've forgotten what's really going on in Gaza. They aren't taking up knitting and planting roses there!

You mean they missed? On purpose? Someone's gonna be in trouble.

I hope that is a joke or Israel is in deep trouble, with supporters like this.....
