The US Embassy in Jerusalem and Special Representative for International Negotiations Jason Greenblatt condemn the death of a Palestinian mother of eight, who was killed in a car crash allegedly caused by stone-throwing in the West Bank over the weekend.
Police and the Shin Bet security service have launched an investigation.
“Saddened to hear of the death of Palestinian mother of eight Aisha al-Rabi this weekend in the West Bank. Our thoughts and prayers go out to her family during this difficult time. We urge the perpetrators be brought to justice,” says a statement from the US Embassy.
“My thoughts & prayers are with Mrs. Aysha al-Rabi’s 8 children & husband. Mrs. al-Rabi was killed when her car was struck by a stone thrown onto the roadway. An investigation into this reprehensible act is ongoing,” adds Greenblatt.
