Palestinian worker says Israeli deliberately ran him over in Tel Aviv

Dec. 7, 2016 4:36 P.M. (Updated: Dec. 7, 2016 4:36 P.M.)
TULKAREM (Ma’an) -- An Israeli ran over a Palestinian worker from the Tulkarem district in the occupied West Bank while he was crossing the street in Tel Aviv, Israel on Wednesday, an incident that the victim claimed was “not an accident.” 

Raja Muhammad Younis, a West Bank Palestinian working in Tel Aviv, suffered foot fractures after being struck by the vehicle, telling Ma’an that he and a group of Palestinian workers were crossing a street near their workplace when they saw an Israeli driving “extremely fast” toward them. 

Younis said that he tried to jump out of the way with the other workers, but the car was too fast and struck him in his foot, causing fractures. He told Ma’an that the incident was “not an accident,” and suspected that it was a hit and run and that the Israeli had deliberately attempted to hurt the Palestinian workers. 

He added that an Israeli ambulance had transferred him to the Ichilov hospital in Tel Aviv and that the Israeli police had opened an investigation into the incident. 

A spokesperson for the Israeli police was not immediately available for comment.
