Israeli settler runs over Palestinian in Ramallah

Oct. 4, 2018 11:24 A.M. (Updated: Oct. 5, 2018 12:04 P.M.)
RAMALLAH (Ma'an) -- A Palestinian was hospitalized after an Israeli settler "deliberately" ran him over, on Wednesday, at the Nilin Israeli military checkpoint in the central occupied West Bank district of Ramallah.

According to Hebrew-language news outlets, a Palestinian identified as Nassif Saleh Khalifa was run over by an Israeli settler while at the Nilin checkpoint.

Khalifa suffered injuries and was immediately transferred to a nearby hospital to receive the necessary medical treatment; his condition remained unknown.

Sources added that Khalifa was on his way back home from his work in Jerusalem City when an Israeli settler ran him over at the checkpoint, although Khalifa was reportedly walking on the sidewalk.

Incidents involving Israeli settlers hitting Palestinians in the occupied Palestinian territory are a relatively regular occurrence, and are usually treated by Israeli security forces as accidents, even in cases when witnesses claim the car rammings were deliberate.
