Jewish settler runs over 7-year-old Palestinian child near Hebron

Dec. 28, 2014 12:59 P.M. (Updated: Dec. 30, 2014 9:05 P.M.)
HEBRON (Ma'an) -- A seven-year-old Palestinian boy from the village of Zif south of Hebron was hit Sunday morning by a vehicle driven by an Israeli settler, causing him moderate wounds.

Locals identified the victim of the incident as Hamada Ali Ayish Qareesh.

The boy was struck by the car while trying to cross a main road.

He was subsequently evacuated by an Israeli army ambulance to Soroka hospital in the city of Beersheba in southern Israel.

Recent months have seen a wave of hit-and-runs against Palestinians by Jewish settlers living in the occupied West Bank, as well as reprisal car attacks in Jerusalem.

In October, a settler ran over two Palestinian children as they walked near near Ramallah, killing 5-year-old Einas Khalil.
