Medics: 2 women injured after hit-and-run involving settler car

Oct. 4, 2011 10:38 A.M. (Updated: Oct. 4, 2011 11:55 A.M.)
NABLUS (Ma’an) -- Two women from the northern West Bank were injured on Tuesday morning in a hit-and-run incident involving an Israeli settler car, medics said.

The women were hit as they crossed the main road of Huwwara village, south Nablus. Ahlam Bilal Hamad, 19, and her sister Saja, 18, suffered mild injuries in the incident.

A settler driving a Subaru pickup truck fled the scene, Palestinian medical sources said.

The Nablus area has witnessed a surge in settler attacks over the last month, including village raids, attacks on property and the vandalism of two mosques.

On Sept. 5, settlers torched a mosque and spray-painted anti-Arab slogans and the Star of David in the village of Qusra, south of Huwwara.
