A Palestinian child was injured, on Monday morning, after a colonist Israeli settler rammed him with his car, near the southern West Bank city of Hebron, and fled the scene.

Rateb Jabour, the coordinator of the Popular Committee against the Wall and Colonies in southern Hebron, said the child has been identified as Hamza Mahmoud Reb’ey, 12.

The colonist was driving on bypass road #60, near Khirbit Erfa’eyya area, east of Yatta town, south of Hebron, and fled the scene directly after ramming the child.

Local Palestinian medics rushed the wounded child to the Hebron Governmental Hospital; his injuries have been described as moderate.
