Army: 2 settlers injured by Molotov cocktail near Qalqiliya

Dec. 25, 2014 7:07 P.M. (Updated: Dec. 28, 2014 2:31 P.M.)
BETHLEHEM (Ma'an) -- The Israeli military said on Thursday that two Israeli settlers were injured after a Molotov cocktail was thrown at their car as it drove in the Jewish settlement of Maale Shomeron, in the Qalqiliya region.

The military said in a statement that an 11-year-old girl was severely burned and her father lightly injured after the Molotov cocktail hit the vehicle they were driving in.

The two were later evacuated to the hospital for treatment, according to the statement, and the military said they were searching the area for suspects.

Maale Shomeron is a Jewish-only settlement immediately beside the Palestinian village of Azzun, east of Qalqiliya, and is built on land confiscated from a number of local Palestinian villages.

Maale Shomeron is part of a larger settlement bloc home to more than 11,000 Jews that curves deep into the West Bank, surrounding a number of Palestinian villages on at least three sides and preventing Palestinians from freely moving in the area.
