Medical sources have reported that a Palestinian woman was injured, late on Thursday evening, after being struck by a settler’s car, in Sultan Suleiman Road, in occupied Jerusalem.Eyewitnesses said a speeding Israeli settler rammed the woman, near Bab al-‘Amoud area, while she was walking across a pedestrian crossing, and fled the scene.
The Wadi Hilweh Information Center (Silwanic) said a number of young Palestinians chased the settler and called the police; the officers ticketed the driver, and released him.
The wounded woman have been identified as Zohour at-Tawil.

There have been hundreds of ‘hit and run’ incidents that largely went uninvestigated by the Israeli authorities, in different parts of the occupied West Bank, even though many of those incidents have led to fatalities.
One of those incidents is the case of Enas Dar Khalil, five years of age, who was killed in 2014, and the settler who killed her fled the scene. http://www.imemc.org/article/69447
