2 women found dead in West Bank floods

TULKAREM (Ma’an) -- Police and rescue workers on Wednesday found the bodies of two women killed after their car was swept away by floods in the northern West Bank.

The victims were identified as Samah Kanan, 36, and Hana Al-Sarawi, 24, both from Nablus.

They went missing on Tuesday evening, and were found on the road between Anabta village and Enab checkpoint east of Tulkarem. The driver of their car was found unharmed and taken to a Tulkarem hospital.

Relatives told Ma'an that the women had left work at an insurance company in Tulkarem, and they lost contact with them around 4 p.m.

Rida Milhis, a relative of Samah, said: "We immediately headed to the location but death was faster than all of us. We kept looking for her for many hours until she was found dead this morning."

Samah had recently got engaged, while Hana, from the Samaritan community, had just joined the insurance company, family members said.

Icy storms raged through the region on Tuesday and Wednesday, causing severe flooding in the northern West Bank and occasional snow.
