BETHLEHEM (Ma'an) -- A Palestinian cyclist was killed and another wounded on Monday afternoon when they were hit by a vehicle with Israeli license plates near the northern occupied West Bank town of Salfit, Israeli media reports said.

Initial reports that the vehicle was driven by settlers were not confirmed, and locals in Salfit said the driver may have been a Palestinian from Kafr Qasim in northern Israel.

The killed cyclist was later identified as Khalil Mousa Amer, 19 from the village of Masha. while his brother, 17-year-old Udayy, was injured.

Relatives told Ma'an that they believed it was likely to have been a car accident and not a settler attack.

They added that the accident took place near the Kafr Qasim checkpoint on the road leading to the village of Masha.

An Israeli army spokesperson said she was aware of an accident but was unable to provide any further details.
