The Magen David Adom ambulance service says seven Palestinians have died, another person is critically injured and two seriously injured in a major crash between a truck and a transportation minibus near the West Bank settlement of Petza’el.

Some passengers are trapped inside the vehicle, and the Israel Fire and Rescue Service estimates rescue efforts will take a long time.

Military choppers are on the way to transport the wounded to hospital, Magen David Adom says.
