The man suspected of being behind the wheel when his jeep struck Lee Zeitouni and killed her in Tel Aviv on Friday night said Sunday "We made a big mistake, but not deliberately. I want the family of this girl to know this was an accident."
Speaking to Channel 10 News from France on Sunday night, Claude Issac said "We want to be in Israel, to go to the family and explain how much it hurts us too. But what can we do today? We killed a Jewish woman who was 25. For us this is the end of the world. Our life is over. But we don't know what we can do."
"I want to tell whole of Israel... I am Jewish. I pray every day. My heart is hurt. I don't know why God let me do something like this," Issac said.
