Israeli driver 'deliberately' runs over Palestinian near Hebron

Aug. 28, 2014 12:22 A.M. (Updated: Aug. 30, 2014 5:53 A.M.)
HEBRON (Ma'an) -- A Palestinian man was injured on Thursday after being run over by a bus carrying Israeli settlers near Hebron, local officials said.

A spokesman for a local committee said that Muntaser al-Hurub, 25, was deliberately knocked down by the bus driver as he crossed a street near the entrance to Beit Ummar.

Al-Hurub was treated at the scene by Red Crescent medics, who described his wounds as moderate.

Locals attempted to stop the bus driver but Israeli soldiers at the entrance to Beit Ummar instructed him to keep driving.
