Witnesses: Ambulance held at checkpoint after fatal crash

NABLUS (Ma'an) -- Israeli forces delayed an ambulance treating victims of a car crash in which a 13-year-old girl died, witnesses told Ma'an.

Anhar Sandouk died at the scene of an accident near Zatara checkpoint south of Nablus in the northern West Bank, medics said.

Four others, including Anhar's parents, were injured in the crash.

Witnesses told Ma'an that Israeli forces held the Palestinian ambulance at Zatara checkpoint for 30 minutes.

The girl's body was eventually taken to the Rafedia Hospital west of Nablus.

An Israeli military spokesman said he would look into the incident.

The family, from Tulkarem, was traveling to an Iftar celebration, the traditional evening meal to break the daytime fast during the Muslim holy month of Ramadan.
