Settler youth killed during police chase identified

The settler youth killed in a car accident in the West Bank during a police chase is identified as Ahuvya Sandak from the settlement of Bat Ayin, according to Hebrew media reports.

The Justice Ministry’s Police Internal Investigations Department is investigating the incident, after lawyers representing the car accident victims claimed police ran their vehicle off the road, causing Sandak’s death and the injury of several others.

Police said the group was pelting rocks at Palestinian cars, prompting the chase.
