Palestinian rammed by Israeli army jeep in 'stable condition'

JERUSALEM (Ma'an) -- A Palestinian who was rammed by an Israeli military jeep during clashes in al-Bireh on Friday is in stable condition, the Palestinian Authority Committee for Prisoners' Affairs said Saturday.

Widely circulated video footage shows the moment an Israeli military jeep rammed into Maher Ghanem al-Froukh, before soldiers disembarked the vehicle and assaulted him while holding back medics.

Karim Ajweh, a lawyer with the PA prisoners' committee, told Ma'an that Froukh was being treated in Hadassah hospital in Jerusalem.

Ajweh said that there was no danger to Froukh's life, but said he had a number of injuries, including fractures and bruising, and was scheduled to undergo surgery.

Israeli police spokesperson Micky Rosenfeld on Friday told Ma'an that he "advised" that the video be viewed in full rather than "the cut version published by Palestinian and Arab media."

He said that Froukh had initially approached border police officers with a petrol bomb in his hand prompting them to chase and detain him.
