NABLUS (Ma'an) -- An Israeli settler died and another was severely injured early Friday when a Palestinian driver struck them with his car at Zaatara military checkpoint in southern Nablus.
Palestinian security forces told Ma’an that a Palestinian driver hit two Israeli settlers with his car killing one immediately, while the other sustained severe injuries.
The driver fled immediately but ran into trees a few meters away from the checkpoint before Israeli forces arrested him.
The forces opened an investigation to find out whether the incident was intentional.
The Israel army denied knowledge of the incident. Israeli media reports said a settler crashed into an army vehicle.
