when they came under fire from rocket propelled grenades. At least one medic was killed in the attack.

Lee, a US citizen, was treated for
a shrapnel wound to his ankle. A video captures the moment he was shot and shows him being helped by colleagues, transported to hospital and treated for his injuries.
