A 75- year old man was seriously injured on Thursday after a settler rammed him with his car close to Efrat settlement, in the far north of the West Bank city of Hebron.

The resident was heading towards his farmland located north of Efrat settlement which is installed on Palestinian annexed lands.

A Palestinian medical source in Hebron reported that Mohammad Abdul-Aziz Ibregheeth, 75, suffered fractures in his skull, severe hemorrhage and fractures in his pelvis.

Ibregheeth was transferred to Hadassah Israeli hospital in Jerusalem.  

Meanwhile, Israeli sources claimed that the resident was hit by a vehicle of an American tourist driving in the area.
