The Israeli national who was seriously injured after he was hit by a passing car near a Palestinian village in the Hebron area has died, Magen David Adom said on Tuesday.

Paramedics administered emergency treatment to a 50-year-old Jewish man who suffered critical injuries near the village of Al-Fawar.

Magen David Adom released a statement to the press saying that attempts to resuscitate the man were for naught, and first aid personnel pronounced the man dead just after 1 p.m. on Tuesday.

"When we got to the area, we saw a car," said MDA paramedic Eyal Mor-Yosef. "Next to the car was a man in his 50s lying unconscious. He had no pulse and no breath."

"There were injuries to critical bodily systems," the paramedic said. "Attempts to save his life were made before we were compelled to pronounce him dead."

Security forces are on the scene and seeking to gain additional details on the incident.
