Palestinian youth in critical condition after being struck by settler's car

A Palestinian youth was injured after an Israeli settler hit the youth with his car Tuesday evening near the village of Husan west of Bethlehem, on Route 60, the occupied West Bank's main highway.

 

A Palestinian youth was injured after an Israeli settler hit the youth with his car Tuesday evening near the village of Husan west of Beit Lahm ('Bethlehem'), on Route 60, the occupied West Bank's main highway.

 

Israeli police spokeswoman Luba al-Samri said in statement that "someone from the Jewish community" hit a Palestinian with his vehicle and fled the scene, but turned himself in at an Israeli police station shortly after.

 

She identified the victim only as a Palestinian "youth," presumably meaning a boy.

 

She described the boy's injury as critical and said he was being treated in a hospital, without providing further details.

 

Incidents involving Israeli settlers hitting Palestinians in the occupied Palestinian territory are a regular occurrence, and are usually treated by Israeli security forces as accidents, even in cases when witnesses claim the car rammings were deliberate.

 

An eight-year-old Palestinian girl was killed just over a week ago after she was run over by an Israeli settler in the Nablus district of the northern occupied West Bank.
