Palestinian youth run over by Israeli settler in Bethlehem

Dec. 18, 2018 10:38 A.M. (Updated: Dec. 20, 2018 10:08 A.M.)
BETHLEHEM (Ma'an) -- A Palestinian youth sustained wounds, on Monday evening, after being run over by an Israeli settler east of the southern West Bank city of Bethlehem, in the southern occupied West Bank.

Locals told Ma'an that 19-year-old Muhammed Mahmoud Odeh Ghazal, from the Kisan village, east of Bethlehem, was run over by an Israeli settler while walking on the main road near the al-Minya village crossroads.

Al -Minya is adjacent to the illegal Israeli settlement of Ma'ale Amos.

Ghazal was transferred to the Beit Jala Governmental hospital for treatment, where he was reported to have sustained bruises and multiple injuries across his body.

Between 500,000 and 600,000 Israelis live in Jewish-only settlements across occupied East Jerusalem and the West Bank in violation of international law, with recent announcements of settlement expansion provoking condemnation from the international community.

The Palestinian government has no jurisdiction over Israelis in the West Bank, and violent acts carried out by Israeli settlers often occur in the presence of Israeli military forces who rarely act to protect Palestinian residents.

The majority of settler attacks committed against Palestinians are met with impunity, with Israelis rarely facing consequences for such attacks.
