QALQILIYA (Ma’an) -- Two Palestinian workers were killed in separate work accidents in Israel and the West Bank on Tuesday, locals said.

Faris Abed Faris, 21, from Azzun al-Atma village near Qalqiliya, died while working for an Israeli construction company in central Israeli city Petah Tikva, his associates said.

He was taken to an Israeli hospital but pronounced dead on arrival, they said, adding that Israeli police have opened an investigation.

In Ramallah, Muhannad Natsheh, 21, was also killed on Tuesday when he fell from the sixth floor of a building he was constructing.

Labor bureau director Muhammad Qabha said after visiting the site that it failed to provide a safe working environment. He warned the PA bureau would close any work site that does not meet the requirements of public safety in the Palestinian Labor Law.
