‘All I know is the smell’: Textiles factory worker dies after being hit by a truck

A textile factory worker has died after being struck by a tractor-trailer in the southern Israeli city of Beit El.

The woman, identified by her initials Tillett, was working on the factory floor on Tuesday afternoon when she was struck by the truck, the Israeli Civil Administration said.

She died at the scene, the agency added.

The driver of the truck was cited for leaving the scene of the accident and no one else was cited, the civil administration said.

No cause of death has been announced.

The Israeli Occupation Authority, which runs the Beit En area, said the woman was working in the textile factory of the group J&G, which was set up to provide textile jobs to Palestinian workers.

The woman was a mother of four children, it said.
