A young boy was killed and five members of his family, including three children, were injured when their family van flipped over near Goral Junction, just north of Beersheba. Media reports put the boy’s age between 8 and 10.
According to police reports, the family was returning from a vacation in the southern part of Israel, where they spent the first intermediary days of the Sukkot festival. They were evacuated to Soroka Medical Center in Beersheba, all with light to moderate injuries.
A police investigation has been launched to determine the cause of the accident.
