HEBRON (Ma’an) — A Palestinian boy from Hebron died on Monday evening from injuries sustained in a hit-and-run accident on Friday.

Farid Jaber, 8, was critically injured when a settler car ran him over in the village of al-Baqaa near the army-controlled H2 area of Hebron, a Ma’an reporter said.

Israeli forces summoned an ambulance and evacuated the child to a hospital inside the Kiryat Arba settlement. An Israeli army spokeswoman confirmed the events.

Jaber’s grandfather told Ma’an the incident was deliberate and not a car accident. He said the Israeli army had prevented the Palestinian Red Crescent from attending to the child.

Locals said that Palestinian youths clashed with Israeli troops after the incident.

An Israeli army spokeswoman said she did not have any reports of clashes, but said two Palestinians were detained for pushing a police officer following the incident.
