Israeli settlers attack civilians in Hebron; 9-year old hit by Israeli settler car in Bethlehem

On Monday night, a Palestinian identified as Sajed Sultan, 19, was seriously wounded in the head when Israeli settlers marched through the city of Hebron demanding vengeance.Israeli troops closed all entrances to the city of Hebron and the village of Halhoul, near Hebron, where the bodies of the settlers were found on Monday.

Israeli extremists attacked two Palestinians in Jerusalem. A taxi driver was sprayed with pepper spray, and a second man was beaten by Israeli settlers in West Jerusalem.

A child was seriously wounded Monday night when an Israeli settler ran her down. Sanabel Attous, 9, from Jab’a village southwest of Bethlehem was hit by an Israeli car which witnesses say deliberately ran her down.

She was taken to the Bethlehem Arab Society Hospital suffering serious fractures and bruises in the head, face and abdomen.

Eyewitnesses said the settler struck her intentionally, and left her in a ditch, on the side of the road, without providing assistance to the wounded child, and left the scene.

Settlers across the West Bank have stepped up attacks on Palestinian civilians over the past 18 days, since 3 Israeli settlers disappeared.

When the bodies of the three settlers were found on Monday, Israeli settler leaders and Israeli government officials vowed revenge against the Palestinian people and particularly the Hamas party, though there has been no evidence linking the deaths of the three settlers to Hamas.

One former Israeli Knesset (Parliament) member posted a video Monday called Palestinian children “little terrorists”, and called for “Death to the enemy, evacuation, and wiping off of [their] smile”, according to a translation by the Electronic Intifada.

EI also quoted Tzachi Hanegbi, a former cabinet minister from the ruling Likud party, as saying, “I don’t know how many Hamas leaders will remain alive after tonight.”
