HEBRON, September 18, 2011 (WAFA) – Jewish settlers ran over a disabled Palestinian on Sunday and abducted another on Saturday night in the West Bank.

A Jewish settler Sunday ran over a physically disabled Palestinian man on the main road in Beit Ummar, a town north of Hebron in the southern West Bank, and fled the scene, said a local official.

Spokesman of the National Committee Against the Wall and Settlement in Beit Ummar, Mohammad Awad, said that Natheer Sabarneh, 36, was hit as he headed to work and sustained injuries to his head and body. He was transferred to hospital.

Jewish settlers, under Israeli army protection, abducted a Palestinian man on Saturday night from his vehicle along the road between Aqraba and Yanon, villages east of Nablus in the northern West Bank, according to local sources.

Witnesses said the whereabouts of the Palestinian man remain unknown.

Jewish settlers have been leading a massive campaign against the Palestinians lately, including physical assaults and open fire at unarmed Palestinians, attacks on mosques as well as setting fire to Palestinian cars and properties, all in retaliation to the Palestinian bid to gain full United Nations membership of a Palestinian state based on 1967 borders later this month.
