HEBRON, Thursday, September 2, 2021 (WAFA) – An Israeli settlers today rammed his car into a Palestinian kid and injured him, east of the occupied West Bank city of Hebron, according to local sources.
Aref Jaber, an anti-colonial-settlement activist, said that eight-year-old Abdul-Rahim al-Jabari got injured after he was run over by an Israeli settler who fled the scene close to the colonial settlement of Kiryat Arba.
The kid was rushed to a hospital for treatment, where medics described his condition as moderate.
Settler violence against Palestinians and their property is routine in the West Bank and is rarely prosecuted by Israeli authorities.
Settler violence includes property and mosque arsons, stone-throwing, uprooting of crops and olive trees, attacks on vulnerable homes, among others.
There are over 700,000 Israeli settlers living in colonial settlements in the West Bank and East Jerusalem.
