2 Israeli settlers killed, 15 injured after bus crashes into ravine near Nablus

Jan. 27, 2017 3:48 P.M. (Updated: Jan. 29, 2017 7:51 P.M.)
BETHLEHEM (Ma'an) -- Two Israeli settlers were killed overnight Thursday after a bus veered and plunged into a ravine near the village of al-Lubban in the northern occupied West Bank district of Nablus, according to Israeli sources.

Israeli daily Haaretz reported that the two dead Israelis were 23 and 37 years old, while at least 15 other people were hurt and taken to a local hospital, with four in serious condition.

The accident took place in the middle of the night amid a heavy downpour of rain.

An Israeli army spokesperson told Ma’an that army forces “assisted in the search and rescue effort as well as provided medical assistance overnight after a civilian bus overturned near Maale Levona,” an illegal Israeli settlement located between Ramallah and Nablus.
