Several injuries have been reported on Saturday [June 29 2013] in a traffic accident between an Israeli settler’s vehicle and a Palestinian car, part of a convoy transporting Palestinian Prime Minister, Rami Hamdallah, near the Tekoa junction in the occupied West Bank.Israeli Ynetnews has reported that the accident took place approximately at 4 PM, and that the accident was reportedly caused by a Palestinian car that swerved into the opposite lane, hitting an Israeli vehicle transporting an Israeli couple and their four granddaughters.

Three bodyguards of the Palestinian Prime Minister suffered mild injuries, and were moved by Red Crescent medics to a local Palestinian hospital in the southern West Bank city of Hebron.

The Prime Minister was riding another vehicle and was not hurt.

The Ynetnews added that an Israeli woman suffered moderate injuries, that her daughters were mildly injured, and that the father suffered moderate to serious wounds. They were all moved to the Hadassah Israeli hospital in Jerusalem.

It is worth mentioning that Hamdallah submitted his resignation to President Mahmoud Abbas nearly two weeks ago. The resignation came a little bit over two weeks since he took office.

Hamdallah is still the PM until a replacement is found
to lead the government until an election date is set.
