Hit-and-run injures young boy in Hebron

Sept. 23, 2011 3:13 P.M. (Updated: Sept. 27, 2011 8:55 A.M.)
HEBRON (Ma'an) -- An eight-year-old boy sustained serious injuries after being struck by a vehicle in east Hebron on Friday morning, eyewitnesses said.

Farid Taleb Jaber was left bleeding as the Israeli-plated car fled the scene by al-Baqaa village near the army-controlled H2 area in the West Bank city's east, locals said.

Israeli forces summoned an ambulance and evacuated the child to a hospital inside the settlement Kiryat Arba, they said. An army spokeswoman said this report fit with her understanding of events.

But Jaber's grandfather told Ma'an the incident was deliberate and not a car accident. He said the Israeli army had prevented the Palestinian Red Crescent from attending to the child.

Locals said that youths clashed with troops after the incident. The army spokeswoman said she did not have reports of clashes, but two Palestinians were detained for pushing a police officer following the incident.
