Hebron: Palestinian child wounded in Israeli military chase of vehicle

HEBRON (The Inside Palestine) – An eight-year-old Palestinian child sustained wounds when Israeli military chased her parents’ vehicle at the entrance to Umm Al-Khair village in Masafer Yatta, south of Hebron, according to a local activist.

Fuad al-‘Amoud, coordinator of the Protection and Steadfastness Committees in Masafer Yatta, said that Israeli police pursued and deliberately hit the vehicle, causing it to veer off the course and plough into a wall at the village entrance, wounding 8-year-old Sidra Najada.

Palestinian Red Crescent medics rushed to the scene and evacuated Najada to Yatta Government Hospital, where medics described her condition as moderate.

The incident is reminiscent to the killing of a 75-year-old anti-occupation activist in a deliberate run-over accident by Israeli police in early January at the town entrance.
