An Israeli colonist rammed, on Wednesday evening, a Palestinian child with his car, near Salfit in central West Bank, and fled the scene.

Medical sources said the child, identified as Yamen Mustafa Soufi, 8, from Hares village, suffered moderate but stable wounds, and was moved to an Israeli hospital.

The child and his family were returning home after picking their olive trees, and was struck by the Israeli car near Hares Junction.

The Israeli colonist fled the scene directly after ramming the child, and did not even slow down.
