Palestinian man injured after being struck by Israeli settler car near Hebron

Feb. 16, 2017 8:44 P.M. (Updated: Feb. 19, 2017 5:00 P.M.)
HEBRON (Ma'an) -- A Palestinian man was injured Thursday evening after being hit by an Israeli settler’s vehicle at the entrance of the town of Beit Ummar in the southern occupied West Bank district of Hebron.

Local activist Muhammad Ayyad Awwad identified the injured man as 36-year-old Rafat Muhammad Shihada Abu Arar Masalma from the town of Deir Samit west of Hebron City.

Awwad added that the incident occurred when Masalma stepped out of his car in order to talk to his brother, who had parked in front of him on the side of the road.

He added that Masalma was talking to his brother when an Israeli settler in a private vehicle “deliberately” ran him over.

Masalma sustained several injuries across his body and face and was immediately transferred by a Palestinian Red Crescent ambulance to a hospital in Hebron City.

Awwad added that the settler fled the area, and that Israeli police later picked up the settler in a military jeep and claimed that the incident was an accident.

An Israeli police spokesperson was not immediately available for comment.
