An Israeli settler hit a Palestinian boy with his car in Hebron, on Monday evening, Ma’an News Agency reported. Residents of the Old City of Hebron witnessed having seen a settler injuring a child with his car and driving away from the street outside the Ibrahimi Mosque, in the Israeli controlled area of the city.
The boy was taken to the al-Mizan Hospital to receive treatment. Medics said the youth sustained moderate wounds.
Officials with Israel’s settlement police force were not available to comment on the incident.
Earlier on Sunday, a Palestinian girl, named Amani al-Mutawer, was also wounded after being knocked down by an Israeli settler driving near the Beit Ainoun bypass road, north of Hebron.
There have been similar incidents concerning dozens of Palestinians injured while the alleged settlers remain at large; and most of them are never arrested.
