Israeli police said on Saturday they were investigating the death of a Palestinian woman in the occupied West Bank after her husband said he suspected Jewish settlers had pelted their car with rocks.

Reuters was unable to independently verify the circumstances of the incident but footage of the car, which a Reuters cameraman said bore Palestinian license plates, showed what appeared to be a blood-stained broken brick at the foot of the passenger seat, which was covered in shattered glass and blood stains.

A source at the Nablus hospital where Aisha al-Rawbi was brought said the 47-year-old, a mother of eight, was dead on arrival and that she had suffered a head injury. Her relatives said an autopsy was to be carried out at another hospital.

The woman’s husband, Aykube al-Rawbi, 52, said he was driving by a settlement late on Friday after dark along the main road near the Palestinian city of Nablus and that he could not clearly see who pelted the car.

Al-Rawbi said:

“The stones came from the side where the settlement is. I could hear the people speak Hebrew, but I didn’t see them.”

Israeli Police Spokesman Micky Rosenfeld said:

“Police arrived in the area and have opened an investigation into the circumstances behind the incident reported.”

There was no immediate comment from Palestinian officials.
