Hebron/PNN/

A Israeli  settler on Monday morning rammed his car into a Palestinian child and injured him badly in Yatta town, south of Hebron city.

Eyewitnesses said the settler fled the scene after hitting the boy deliberately with his car.

The child was identified as 11-year-old Hamza Rab’ie and was rushed to al-Khalil hospital.

The victim has suffered a bone fracture in his left thigh and abdominal bleeding, according to doctors in the hospital.

The Palestinian natives of Masafer Yatta (hamlets of Yatta) are exposed to recurrent car-ramming attacks by Israeli  settlers who drive their vehicles on a nearby bypass road built on their land.
