An Israeli man sustained moderate to serious injuries on Saturday in a head-on collision between a private car and a vehicle travelling the convoy of Palestinian Prime Minister Rami Hamdallah.

 

The accident took place at the Tekoa Junction in the West Bank at approximately 4 pm, apparently after the Palestinian car veered into the opposite lane. The Israeli car was carrying a couple and their four daughters.

The hospital said the parents were in stable condition.

 

Three security guards who were travelling in the Palestinian vehicle suffered mild wounds and were evacuated by a Red Crescent ambulance to a hospital in Hebron. At the time of the accident, PM Hamdallah was riding in another vehicle in the convoy.

 

Traffic Police officers from the Shai District said an initial investigation revealed that the Palestinian vehicle crossed the separation line while trying to bypass another car.

 

About two weeks ago PM Hamdallah submitted his resignation to Palestinian President Mahmoud Abbas after less than 18 days in office. He will stay on as PM until a replacement is found.
