The woman was hit as she crossed Route 60 near the outpost. The car appeared to be a Palestinian taxi, which fled the scene.

A Magen David Adom paramedic said the woman was found unconscious in a ditch and had sustained massive injuries. She was not breathing nor did she have a pulse.

 Paramedics were unable to revive her and she was declared dead at the scene.

The incident occurred close to the site of a January 9 terror attack in which Rabbi Raziel Shevach, a father of six, was shot dead by Palestinians as he drove near his home in the Havat Gilad outpost.

Samaria Regional Council head Yossi Dagan visited the scene immediately and received an update from the IDF.
