The driver, 22, a resident of the West Bank village of Zurif, was found not to have a driver’s license. He was given a fine and his vehicle was impounded for 30 days. He was also summoned to the West Bank traffic police office for further processing.

“We are sorry about the fact that people, on their day of celebration, drive irresponsibly while flagrantly ignoring the law,” said Eyal Atiya, the acting head of the West Bank traffic police. “The traffic police will enforce the law vigorously in hopes of preserving the lives of those using the highways.”
