HEBRON (Ma’an) -- A young boy was injured on Sunday after being run over by a settler car in the Tel Rumeida neighborhood of Hebron, witnesses told Ma'an.
Mamoun al-Saheb, 9, was treated at the scene by Israeli soldiers, before being taken to hospital.
The settler was arrested.
Tel Rumeida lies in the Israeli-military controlled H2 zone of the southern West Bank city, after a 1997 agreement split Hebron into areas of Palestinian and Israeli control.
The zone includes the ancient Old City, home of the revered Ibrahimi Mosque -- also split into a synagogue referred to as the Tomb of the Patriarchs.
Around 800 Jewish settlers live in Hebron's Old City, among 30,000 Palestinians in the parts of the city that are under Israeli control.
