Update: Illegal Entrants Cross Line, Israel Man Killed

An Israeli man was killed in a car crash between Hevron and Be’er Sheva on Sunday, Ynet reports. The victim lived in one of the Israeli communities in the Hevron region. The crash was caused by a driver who was bringing Palestinian Authority resident Arabs into Israel illegally. The driver swerved across the white line, causing a horrific crash in which one car was completely burned.

The crash is reminiscent of a crash in early January in which Itai Gilboa, an Israeli from the Hevron region, was killed when a PA resident driver hit him. At the time, Kiryat Arba residents warned that lax enforcement of traffic laws under the PA was putting Israelis at risk.
