Two people were killed on Saturday night in a traffic accident between the settlements Tapuach and Migdalim.

Magen David Adom paramedics and volunteers from the Samaria Regional Council that arrived on the scene attempted to resuscitate the victims but pronounced both drivers dead at the scene. Nearby they found the corpses of two wild boars which apparently caused the two vehicles to swerve and collide.

Samaria Regional Council head Gershon Mesika said the accident was a result of what he described as successive governments' neglect of the roads in the West Bank.

"I call on the government to improve lighting along the roads in the West Bank, just as it does in other areas of the country," he said.
