12-year-old injured after settlers hurl rocks at Palestinian car

Jan. 11, 2015 11:52 A.M. (Updated: Jan. 11, 2015 8:05 P.M.)
NABLUS (Ma'an) -- A Palestinian girl from Nablus sustained wounds on Saturday night after a group of Israeli settlers hurled rocks at the car she was traveling in.

Local sources said that 12-year-old Rua Hazim Sawalha was in a car just north of Ramallah near the Jewish-only settlement of Beit El when the rocks struck her car and injured her.

Sawalha was evacuated to St. Luke's Hospital in Nablus as a result of her injuries.

The group of settlers was reportedly standing on the side of the main road, throwing rocks at cars with white Palestinian license plates.

Jewish settlers in the West Bank have yellow Israeli license plates, meanwhile.

In 2014, there were at least 329 incidents of settler violence against Palestinians in the occupied West Bank, according to the UN.

More than 500,000 Israeli settlers live in settlements across the West Bank and East Jerusalem, in contravention of international law.
