A Palestinian girl was seriously injured Thursday after being run over by a Jewish settler in the occupied West Bank, eyewitnesses said.
Rozi Gaber, 8, was walking on the main street in the old city of Al-Khalil (Hebron) when the settler deliberately ran her over, the witnesses said.
The girl has been rushed to Al-Khalil hospital in a serious condition.
Palestinians complain of a rising wave of attacks by Jewish settlers in the West Bank.
Al-Khalil is home to about 160,000 Palestinian Muslims and about 500 Jewish settlers.
The settlers live in several Jewish-only enclaves that are heavily guarded by Israeli troops.
