This is the second accident within a year in Romania that took the lives of Israeli medical students. In April, Tawfiq al-Kareenawi, a third-year medical student from Rahat, and Diaa Zabida, 22, from Lod, were killed in an accident that took place in an eastern Romanian city.

The Foreign Ministry said that the embassy in Bucharest was working to bring the bodies of al-Jabrin and Dahamshah back for burial in Israel , and was in contacts with the other Israelis who have been hospitalized.
