After a relatively incident free day on Monday, there were a flurry of attacks and incidents which took place on Tuesday.
Father of seven run over and killed in a suspected car ramming incident
A man was run over and killed after he exited his vehicle on the side of a busy road. It is reported that his car was pelted with stones so he got out of his car, armed with a stick, to confront the rock throwers. When he exited his vehicle he was the hit by a truck and killed.
The driver of the truck was a Palestinian who initially fled the scene, but eventually turned himself in to police saying it was an accident.
It appears the mans death may have been accidental, but the fact remains he would not have left his vehicle, and therefore would still be alive, if his car was not pelted with stones in the first place.
