Israeli colonists, illegally squatting on Palestinian land, have escalated their attacks against the Palestinian people, injured one child in addition to attempting to ram three child siblings with a car.

Media sources in Hebron, in southern West Bank, said several Israeli colonists chased and assaulted a Palestinian child in the city.

They added that the child, Mahmoud Tamiza, suffered cuts and bruises to several parts of his body.

In addition, a female Israeli colonist drove her car into Jabal Jales area, in Hebron city, and attempted to ram three child siblings.

Resident Rashid Tamimi said the colonist, from the illegal Havat Gal outpost, sped towards the children, identified as Ghazal Mahmoud Baradeyya, 11, along with her siblings, Nour, 8, and Mustafa, 3.

He added that a Palestinian man noticed the colonist speeding towards the children, and barely managed to move them away from the car’s path.

In related news, several colonists invaded lands belonging to Umm ar-Reehan village, near Ya’bad town, southwest of the northern West Bank city of Jenin, and installed an outpost close to the village’s main junction.

Ya’bad is surrounded by the illegal annexation wall and various colonies, in addition to being subject to frequent Israeli violations targeting the Palestinians and their property.

Many colonists also attacked several Palestinian homes in Beit Iskaria village, south of Bethlehem, south of occupied Jerusalem in the West Bank.

The village is surrounded by colonies of the Gush Etzion colonialist block, south of Bethlehem, and witnesses repeated violations.
