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.
Young Republican Group Comes to Armenia’s Defense
NYYRC stands with Armenia in the conflict.
The New York Young Republican Club came to the defense of the state of Armenia on September 29, 2020 and condemned the government of Azerbaijan for its attack on the disputed territory of Nagorno-Karabakh over the last weekend. The group called on the U.S. government and all sovereign bodies to recognize the independence of the Republic of Artsakh (Nagorno-Karabakh) and take necessary steps to prevent further attacks by the Azerbaijani government and its Islamist allies.
The Republican youth group fully supports the Armenian people and cited their long history as one of the many reasons they merit support from the West. It brought forward some historical points:
The Armenian people have a long history in the South Caucasus and the Armenian Highlands. The Republic of Artsakh contains sites of great historical significance to them, including the fourth-century Amaras Monastery. In the twentieth century, geopolitical events in Turkey and the Soviet Union dispossessed Armenians of much of their historic territory. The Armenian Genocide conducted by Turks destroyed untold lives and stole Mount Ararat from the Armenians. Further incursions into territory integral to the history and fundamental identity of the Armenian people cannot be tolerated.
In the statement, the Republican group called out the “Fake News Media” for “inadequately” relaying “the truth of the events unfolding in the Republic of Artsakh.” It called attention to how Turkey has fostered chaos by using its Islamist proxies in Syria and sending them to Armenia to terrorize Armenians. The group expanded on the over-arching trend of growing Islamic radicalism directed towards Christian nations:
This continues a trend from decades ago whereby Armenia’s neighbors enlisted Afghan Mujahideen and Chechen mercenaries to attack. Allowing Turkey and Azerbaijan to use Radical Islamic Terrorists to attack Armenian Christians represents a dereliction of the United States’s fundamental values.
The Young Republican Club concluded its statement with the following:
The New York Young Republican Club stands with the Armenian people and residents of the Republic of Artsakh, who overwhelmingly reject Azerbaijani claims of authority. We urge the Republic of Armenia and the Republic of Artsakh to cooperate efficaciously in the interest of the Armenian people, and we implore the global Armenian diaspora advocate in the shared interests of all Armenians. In addition, we request that President Donald J Trump enact economic and trade sanctions against Turkey and Azerbaijan.
BLP was able to get in touch with Gavin Wax, the president of the New York Young Republican Club, and get his thoughts on this matter.
Wax stated, “Armenia is on the frontlines fighting back against Islamist aggression. The disputed region of Nagorno-Karabakh between Armenia and Azerbaijan is almost 99% Armenian. It is rightful Armenian territory. The oldest Christian state in the world should be defended by the West not abandoned.”
This current conflict demonstrates the naivete of American foreign policy with regards to how it has coddled Turkey for so long and allowed it to run around and cause geopolitical havoc.
Additionally, this demonstrates the uselessness of alliances such as NATO, which has already become outdated and compromised thanks to the inclusion of Turkey in it.
As the U.S.’s very own oil boom continues in motion, it should withdraw from the Middle East and focus more on its domestic and Western Hemisphere affairs.
Nevertheless, it should offer moral support and give Armenia diplomatic cover against predatory states such as Azerbaijan and Turkey. The latter is trying to re-enact Neo-Ottoman fantasies that will likely leave many Christian nations devastated.
