Five Palestinian citizens, including a mother and her two children, have been injured as a result of ramming incidents by Jewish settlers in Hebron, in the southern West Bank. According to the Palestinian police public relations and media department, Ahmed Al-Alamy and Allam Ghazi, 19, were wounded seriously after the vehicle in which they were travelling was rammed by a vehicle driven by an Israeli settler at the entrance to Beit Ummar, north of Hebron. The two men were taken to Ahli Hospital for treatment. Al-Alamy was later transferred to Hadassah Ein Karem hospital in occupied Jerusalem.
In a similar attack, another settler rammed into a vehicle containing a mother and her two children in Al-Jab’a, north of Hebron. The three were transferred to Ahli Hospital in Hebron; their wounds were not said to be serious.
These incidents follow a fatal accident last Thursday when three Palestinians from Tulkarem, in the occupied West Bank, were killed on the road between Tulkarem and Nablus. The men worked for the Palestinian Ministry of Finance and were killed on their way home from the ministry’s Ramallah headquarters. Local sources reported that a car belonging to Israeli settlers caused the accident before the driver fled from the scene.
