I'm Safe, Thank God - Now Updated

As an observant Jew, I do not drive/ride on the Shabbat:

Four people were killed and several others injured in two separate car accidents early Saturday morning.

Near Shiloh in the West Bank two cars collided head-on. Magen David Adom teams that arrived on the scene pronounced them dead.

Another man was evacuated to Hadassah Ein Kerem Hospital in Jerusalem. Several Palestinians who were injured were evacuated to a West Bank hospital.


Seems that several Jewish teenagers were returning at 6:30AM from Jerusalem back to their home in Ariel, north of us.

Opposite us, near Sinjil village, their car pulled out to overtake, not a smart move on our roads (which were probably made by following in the tracks of a donkey). Trying to return after spotting an upcoming vehicle, their car hit another car and the accident developed from there.


But probable preventable if more care would have been observed.
