Jerusalem Al-Quds (SaebPress) — Ten Palestinian schoolchildren were killed and 42 injured as a large ‘Israeli’ truck collided with their school bus northeast of Jerusalem Al-Quds Thursday, medics said.
Palestinian police confirmed that a large ‘Israeli’ truck collided with children’s school bus near Jaba, in the occupied West Bank, causing it to flip over.
The bus was on its way to an amusement park in Ramallah with kids from Nour al-Huda primary school in the East Jerusalem Al-Quds.
The Red Crescent said that ambulances had transferred a large number of injured people to hospital. At least eight are said to be in serious condition. Seven bodies have been taken to the Palestinian Medical Clinic and three are at the Hadassah hospital in Jerusalem Al-Quds.
“First ambulance took over 25 minutes to reach the collusion location while some of these innocent children burned alive in the bus”. A local resident told SaebPress.
“This could have bing prevented if Israel would have not made palestinins drive on unsafe roads and having to drive miles in circles to get to there point, palestinins are perveveted from driving on highways in the west bank that are for ‘Israelis’ only”.A Palestinian firefighter stated.
“Firefighters began to take bodies out of the bus. We saw there was nothing more to be done,” said Shalom Galil, an ‘Israeli’ paramedic at the scene.
