Five members of one family, including three Israeli citizens, were killed on Sunday night in a car accident in the Jenin area, Palestinian police reported. According to the report, a woman and her two daughters from the village of Yafiya, near Nazareth, were on their way back after breaking the Ramadan fast at the home of her brother in a West Bank village near Jenin. The brother, accompanied by his wife, was driving his sister and her two daughters to a checkpoint, when a taxi tried to overtake a tractor and collided head-on with the family's vehicle. The taxi driver was moderately-seriously injured and was evacuated to a hospital in Nablus.
