Official: Palestinian dies in car wreck after 'Israeli police chase'

March 11, 2014 9:46 A.M. (Updated: March 12, 2014 5:41 P.M.)
TULKAREM (Ma'an) -- A Palestinian man died and another sustained injuries early Tuesday when the car they were driving flipped during a road chase by Israeli police, a local official said.

Governor of Tulkarem Abdullah Kamil told Ma'an that Fidaa Muhye Addin Majadlah died and Ibrahim Adnan Shukri sustained moderate to serious injuries as a result of the car wreck. Both men are from the Tulkarem village of Attil.

The Palestinian liaison department contacted their Israeli counterpart, who claimed that the incident was a car accident, with no hot pursuit involved, Kamil said.

He added that Israeli authorities were currently in possession of Majadlah's body, and that Shukri is in Israeli custody.

Palestinian security sources told AFP that Israeli troops fired at the car, but that it was not clear whether Majadlah was killed by the gunfire or the crash.

An Israeli army spokeswoman said she was not familiar with the car chase incident, saying "it was probably a car accident."

A police spokesman did not return calls seeking comment.

AFP contributed to this report.
