Jewish settler runs over 5-year-old Palestinian near Tulkarem

TULKAREM (Ma’an) — A settler car ran over a five-year-old Palestinian child near Tulkarem on Friday, medics said.

Yamen Nabil Mahmoud, five, from Shufa village was hit by the vehicle on a bypass road south of the West Bank city.

The child was taken to a local hospital for treatment, where he is said to be in a moderate condition.

The circumstances behind the incident are unclear.

In December, a 10-year-old Palestinian boy was injured after an Israeli settler ran him over on the main road of the Palestinian village of Tuqu south east of Bethlehem.

Months earlier, a settler ran over two Palestinian children as they walked near near Ramallah, killing five-year-old Einas Khalil.
