Settler said behind wheel of Qalqiliya hit and run

QALQILIYA (Ma’an) -- A Nablus father was reported injured Thursday after a settler allegedly ran him over and fled the scene.

Mahmud Muhammad Al-Hajj Jum’a, 32, said he was standing near the main road east of Qalqiliya waiting near the area's Israeli District Coordination Office for a taxi to take him home to Nablus when an Israeli-plated car careened toward him and struck his legs and hips.

Jum'a said he was able to call for medical assistance, and he was taken to the Darwish Nazzal Hospital in Qalqiliya, where medics said he was moderately injured.

Tensions between settlers and Palestinians remain high, as groups in the West Bank celebrated the end of a settlement construction freeze by laying the foundations of dozens of new homes on land Palestinians hope will be part of their state.
