An Israeli lorry driver hit a Palestinian students’ bus killing at least 8 and one female teacher in a busy junction in the city of Ramalla, West Bank.

Resources confirmed that there are at least 30 others injured, seven of them critically.

Medical resources said that the number of casualties is expected to rise as the bus, which was carrying about 50 children, was severely damaged.

“The accident resulted of a huge fire set in the bus that resulted in the big number of cuasalities,” witnesess said.

Palestinians started a three day of mourning to mark this sad incident and flags to be lowered during these three days.

It is common that cars of Israelis settlers hit Palestinians in the West Bank. Many NGOs and human rights organisations have called for the end of such kind of accidents, but no response.
