A speeding illegal Israeli colonist rammed with his car, on Saturday evening, a Palestinian child in the al-Ferdees Mountain area, east of Bethlehem, in the occupied West Bank.

Media sources said the child, only five years of age, suffered various cuts and bruises, and that his wounds were described as moderate-but-stable.

They added that an Israeli ambulance was called to the scene and provided the needed medical attention to the wounded child, but did not move him to an Israeli hospital.

A Palestinian Red Crescent ambulance was then called to the scene and rushed the child to a hospital in Bethlehem.
