Fayala said the two brothers were on the side of the road near the checkpoint fixing a puncture in one of the tires of their vehicle when a Jewish settler drove his car into them, killing Mohammad and seriously injuring Muhannad.
Muhannad was rushed to a hospital in Israel for medical treatment before he was pronounced dead a short time later.
