HEBRON (Ma’an) — An Israeli settler knocked down a Palestinian boy with his car on Monday evening, driving away and leaving the child in the street, residents of Hebron’s Old City told Ma’an.

The incident occurred outside the Ibrahimi Mosque, also known as the Cave of the Patriarchs, in the area of Hebron under Israeli control.

The boy was evacuated to the Al-Mizan Hospital in Hebron where medics said his wounds were moderate.

Officials with Israel’s settlement police force could not be reached by phone for comment on the incident.

On Sunday, outside of the Old City, an Israeli settler ran down an 11-year-old girl near the Beit Ainun, medics reported.

The girl, identified as Amani Al-Mutawer, was walking to school when she was hit. She was transferred to Hadassah hospital in Israel, where her condition was described as moderate.
