A Palestinian child sustained serious wounds, this past Sunday evening, after he was hit by an Israeli settler driving in eastern Qalqilia province.

Medics rushed to the scene and evacuated the wounded child, identified by Al Ray as six-year-old Seif Hanoun, to Darwish Nazal hospital.

In recent years, hit-and-run attacks by Israeli settlers against Palestinian children have seen an unprecedented hike across the occupied Palestinian territories.

Dozens have succumbed to wounds inflicted by Israeli car-ramming assaults.
