An Israeli woman is dead after she was mowed down by a Palestinian driver who fled the scene and left the woman to die.
The apparent vehicular jihad took place on Thursday near the Jewish community of Havat Gilad in central Samaria.
“United Hatzalah EMS volunteers performed CPR on a woman who was critically injured in a car-ramming incident near Havat Gilad. Unfortunately, following a lengthy resuscitative effort, paramedics at the scene were forced to pronounce her death due to the severity of her injuries,” United Hatzalah said in a statement.
United Hatzalah is the largest independent, non-profit, fully volunteer Emergency Medical Service that provides free emergency medical response throughout Israel.
Israel Defense Forces confirmed the car-ramming incident in a statement on Twitter, erected roadblocks at the entrance of the Palestinian city of Nablus, and inspected vehicles in an effort to locate suspects.
Initial report: moments ago, a car-ramming incident occurred near the community of Havat Gilad. The details of the incident are being looked into

A senior Palestinian Authority (PA) official confirmed that a 63-year-old male had turned himself into the police and insisted that he “accidentally” ran the Jewish woman over. According to the official, the man is in custody and will face the PA judicial system. However, authorities have not yet released his name.
Samaria Regional Council chairman Yossi Dagan insisted the incident was a terror attack.
“From the point of view of the military commanders in the field, and from our point of view as well, this is a terror attack for all intents and purposes,” he claimed.
The leader of the community in Samaria also believes the car ramming was an act of terrorism given the fact that there were no apparent skid marks to indicate that the driver slammed on the brakes or made an attempt to slow down. “This is another terror attack, a cold-blooded murder of a Samaria resident on a central road in the State of Israel.”
A spokesperson for the Samaria Regional Council said the woman was killed by the Palestinian driver near the site of a terrorist attack that took place in January, when Rabbi Raziel Shevach was shot dead by a Hamas terrorist.
Israeli security forces are investigating the woman’s death.

UPDATE: British Prime Minister Boris Johnson Moved to ICU, Condition ‘Worsening’ After Coronavirus Diagnosis
Johnson was put in the ICU on Monday.
British Prime Minister Boris Johnson has been moved to the intensive care unit after being hospitalized following his diagnosis with COVID-19 Chinese coronavirus.
Johnson was brought to St Thomas’ Hospital on Sunday night merely “as a precaution” because his coronavirus symptoms were not clearing up. Johnson’s administration initially tried to downplay his illness to keep the public from being alarmed.
“Since Sunday evening, the Prime Minister has been under the care of doctors at St Thomas’ Hospital, in London, after being admitted with persistent symptoms of coronavirus,” a spokesman said.
However, Johnson’s health is quickly deteriorating, and the government has been forced to admit the seriousness of the Prime Minister’s medical situation.
“Over the course of this afternoon, the condition of the Prime Minister has worsened and, on the advice of his medical team, he has been moved to the Intensive Care Unit at the hospital,” the spokesman said.
“The PM has asked Foreign Secretary Dominic Raab, who is the First Secretary of State, to deputise for him where necessary. The PM is receiving excellent care, and thanks all NHS staff for their hard work and dedication,” they added.
Johnson addressed the British people on his Twitter account earlier today, indicating that he is still on the job regardless of his worsening condition.
“Last night, on the advice of my doctor, I went into hospital for some routine tests as I’m still experiencing coronavirus symptoms. I’m in good spirits and keeping in touch with my team, as we work together to fight this virus and keep everyone safe,” Johnson wrote in a tweet.
Politicians from all sides of the aisle are wishing Johnson the best as he fights for his life in the ICU while afflicted with the oft-deadly coronavirus.
“Terribly sad news. All the country’s thoughts are with the Prime Minister and his family during this incredibly difficult time,” new Labour leader Keir Starmer wrote in a tweet.
Scotland First Minister Nicola Sturgeon wrote in a tweet: “My thoughts are with the PM and his family – sending him every good wish.”
“My thoughts tonight are with @BorisJohnson and @carriesymonds. I know he’ll be getting the best care possible and will come out of this even stronger,” tweeted Chancellor Rishi Sunak.
“Praying for the Prime Minister’s swift recovery tonight,” London Mayor Sadiq Khan wrote in a tweet.
Big League Politics will continue to monitor Johnson’s condition and provide updates as his health improves or worsens.
