JERUSALEM (Ma’an) — A five-year-old boy injured in a deadly school bus crash near Ramallah last week has died from his injuries, medics told Ma’an on Monday.

Salah Dweik was severely wounded when the vehicle collided with a truck near the Jaba checkpoint north of Jerusalem on Thursday. Five of his elementary school classmates and a teacher were killed when the bus overturned and set ablaze.

He was treated in Hadasa Ein Karem hospital in Jerusalem, but died from his injuries on Monday, doctors said. The boy’s funeral will be held on Tuesday afternoon in Al-Aqsa mosque.

The children had been traveling from Shufat refugee camp to a playground near Ramallah for a school trip. The deadly accident caused widespread shock, and PA Prime Minister Salam Fayyad announced a cross-ministerial commission of inquiry on Saturday.
