Erez Levy

January 18, 2017: Erez Levy, 37, was killed by a Palestinian driver who reportedly deliberately struck him during clashes that erupted after the Israeli army and police began demolishing homes and structures in Umm al-Hiran village in the Negev. Eyewitnesses said the Palestinian driver, Yacoub Abu al-Qee’an, 47, a local mathematics teacher, lost control of his car after the police fired at it, eventually rolling down a hill, hitting two officers who were walking up the hill, and coming to a halt after crashing into another car, killing Levy and wounding another officer. Ayman Odeh, Arab Member of Knesset of Hadash Party and the head of the Knesset’s Joint List, was among many injured by Israeli police fire. Source: IMEMC
