Welcome to Palestine Today, a service of the International Middle East Media Center, www.imemc.org, for Thursday, September 25th, 2014.
Israeli settler injuries a Palestinian child, and Israeli troops invade West Bank communities and kidnap civilians. These stories, and more, coming up, stay tuned.
An Israeli settler deliberately ran over a Palestinian child in the occupied east Jerusalem town of Silwan, on Thursday, according to local sources.
The sources announced that a settler’s armored vehicle ran over a 10-year-old child in a deliberate hit and run assault while passing near the settlement outpost of ‘Beit Yehonatan’ (Jonathan’s House), built illegally on Silwan’s land.
The child reportedly sustained fractures in his hands and was transferred to hospital for treatment; his condition was described as ‘moderate’.
On Thursday at dawn, Israeli forces kidnapped three Palestinians during invasions targeting a number of West Bank communities. Local sources reported invasions and home searches in the districts of Bethlehem, Tubas and Hebron.
In other news, scores of Palestinian journalists staged a stand-in on Thursday morning, in Gaza, to mark an International Day of Solidarity with Palestinian journalists.
The event was organized by the Palestinian Ministry of Information, and took place outside of the United Nation’s office in Gaza.
Dozens of Palestinian journalists and family members of 16 of the journalists who lost their lives in the recent Israeli offensive participated in the event.
The journalists called on the United Nations to intervene, in order to stop the Israeli violations against them and demanded the expulsion of Israel from all international organizations and journalistic bodies.
