An unidentified driver, on Wednesday, ran over a Palestinian girl in Jabal Jales area south of Hebron, southern West Bank.

Locals said that the driver was an Israeli settler, still unidentified, and that he ran over a 10-year-old girl in Jaber neighborhood in Hebron, causing her moderate injuries.

Locals told Ma’an that the girl, Duaa Diab Jaber, was taken to hospital with several fractures across her body after she was hit by the car, which fled the scene afterward.

Local reports that the driver was an Israeli settler could not immediately be confirmed.

An Israeli army spokesperson told Ma’an they were looking into the reports.
