Former Israel captain Hillel Oscar was killed on Saturday during a cricket match in Ashod, 32 kilometres south of Tel Aviv.

The incident ocurred during the final match of Israel's league season.

According to several spectators at the match, Oscar, 55, now an international cricket umpire, was hit in the upper body by a cricket ball and collapsed while umpiring the match. Responding paramedics discovered he had no pulse.  He was rushed to Barzilai Medical Center in nearby Ashkelon where he was pronounced dead.

"The cricket family bows its head over the passing of Hillel Oscar, Naor Gudkar, CEO of the Israeli Cricket Association said Saturday. "This is a tragedy for his family and for cricket in Israel.

 "This is a 'one-in-amillion' accident. It happened a few days ago to an Australian player and I don't know how it has arrived at our doorstep."

"I'm sure world cricket will look into what happened last week and we will also investigate the incident, but I'm not sure there was anything we could have done as we act according to all the rules and regulations," the Israeli cricket chief said.

The Israeli tragedy comes just two days after Australian Test cricketer Phillip Hughes was hit by a cricket ball during a game at the Sydney Cricket  Ground two days earlier.

It is unusual; for umpires to be injured or killed by cricket balls. They do not have the protection of cricket helmets due to the rarity of their involvement in incidents. The most recent fatality involving an umpire was four years ago in 2010 when a 72-year-old Welsh cricket umpire was killed when struck by a ball in the head.

A deadly three-way collision in southern Israel has left eight women dead. Around thirty people have also been injured in one of the deadliest traffic incidents in the country in years. The collision involved a bus carrying women, mostly in their 50s, who were on their way home after a prayer tour to al Aksa mosque in Jerusalem. The bus collided with a tractor being towed by a truck, and a car. A fleet of ambulances ferried the injured to Soroka University Medical Center in Beersheba.

Today, May 15, is being marked in the Middle East in different ways. For Israel it is the birth date of the Jewish state 65 years ago. For the Palestinians it is the 65th anniversary of when they lost their lands their struggle for statehood began. This is how The Palestinian Post (now known as The Jerusalem Post) saw the events on the day.
