BETHLEHEM (Ma'an) -- 18 Palestinian workers were injured on Tuesday evening in a car accident that occurred on Route 35 near the Tarqumiya checkpoint close to the Hebron-area Beit Jibrin village in the southern occupied West Bank. 

Medical teams reported the injuries of three of the workers as critical, and that a helicopter was sent to transfer those injured to hospitals.

Israeli media said that the main collision occurred between a vehicle carrying Palestinian workers and another private vehicle, while two other cars also crashed as a result. 

Israeli police spokeswoman Luba al-Samri said in a statement that "a severe car accident occurred on Route 35 after Beit Jibrin on the way to Tarqumiya as a private vehicle and transport vehicle crashed into each other leaving 3 critically injured and 15 with light injuries, all apparently Arabs."

"They were transferred to hospitals for treatment as the police continue investigations into details of the accident," al-Samri said
