The two killed were trapped inside the car and had to be evacuated from the mangled vehicles by rescue personnel.

Another passenger was taken to Soroka University Medical Center in Beersheba in serious condition.

Police said initial findings indicate that one of the cars veered out of its lane into oncoming traffic and hit the other vehicle head on.

Also on Thursday, Dalia Malul, 40, and Ofra Muler, 69, were killed in a head-on collision between two cars in the industrial district of Hatzor Haglilit in the North.

Four other people were also hurt in the accident, including an eight-month-old baby who was lightly hurt and a seven-year-old who was moderately wounded.

On Thursday evening at the Shilo junction in the West Bank, a two-year-old Palestinian child was seriously wounded and two other Palestinians were lightly wounded in a collision between a private car and a truck, both of which were registered in the Palestinian territories.
