On Friday evening, a Palestinian child was injured after being rammed by a speeding car of an illegal Israeli colonizer near Qalqilia, in the northern part of the occupied West Bank.
Saher Eid, the Mayor of Jinsafut village, east of Qalqilia, said the child was identified as Othman Abdullah Sabra, 12.
He added that the colonizer rammed the child near Qana Valley junction, east of Qalqilia, before Israeli medics were called to the scene and moved him to a hospital.
It is worth mentioning that many Palestinians have been killed, and many injured, in similar incidents.
On January 6, 2022, a young man, Mustafa Yassin Falna, 25, from Safa village, west of Ramallah, was killed in the central part of the occupied West Bank after being rammed by an Israeli vehicle while heading to his work in Jerusalem.
The incident occurred approximately at six in the morning on Road #443 near Maccabim roadblock, west of Jerusalem.
After his death, The Palestinian Ministry of Foreign Affairs and Expatriates said in a statement that “This situation confirms not only the racism of the occupying state in dealing with the Palestinians but also the absolute disregard for their lives as if they have no value.”
It added, “We consider such incidents, which have become a phenomenon that is repeatedly occurring without any real investigation of follow-up by the occupation police or the army, as crimes, whether intentional and deliberate or by negligence and indifference shown by the occupying police, even if they are ordinary traffic accidents involving a Palestinian.”
On December 24, 2021, a Palestinian woman, Ghadir Anis Masalma, 63, was killed by an Israeli colonialist settler who rammed her with his car and fled the scene near the entrance of the town of Sinjil, northeast of Ramallah in the central occupied West Bank.
