HEBRON (Ma'an) -- An Israeli military vehicle on Saturday hit a Palestinian girl in the southern West Bank, injuring her seriously, a local spokesman said.

Nidal al-Haddar, spokesman for Yatta's popular committee, told Ma'an that an Israeli military jeep hit 14-year-old Samirah Tawfiq Awad during a protest in Yatta.

Samirah was transferred to a nearby hospital, where medics said she had sustained serious injuries.

Locals organized the demonstration to protest against Israel's confiscation of their land in the Um al-Arayis neighborhood, he added.

An Israeli army spokeswoman said 30 Palestinians were gathered in the area, and Israeli soldiers arrived at the scene in order to insure "the gathering wouldn't evolve into a violent riot."

"One vehicle bumped into a Palestinian by accident," the spokeswoman said. "There were no apparent injuries, but the Red Crescent took her to the hospital for examinations."

The internationally recognized Palestinian territories of which the West Bank and East Jerusalem form a part have been occupied by the Israeli military since 1967.

The most immoral army in the world always has "No Comment" because they kill Palestinians in such vile ways on a daily basis.

There is a big discrepancy between " no apparent injuries" and " serious injuries". I think the IDF is lying again.

They're worried about what they call "the demographic problem", you see, i.e. a lot of goyim in their self-styled "Jewish state". Killing Palestinian children is a way of dealing with it.

This demonstrates the COWARDICE OF "YATTA's popular committee", for using 14-year-old girls, to stop Israeli military jeeps, and HAMAS AND THE PLO are no different.

Because car accidents never happen right? When an Israeli hits a Palestinian , it's automatically intentional but vice versa Im sure you guys would claim it is an accident. Pro Palestinians are the most deluded people Ive ever encountered

To Tibi #4: '...This demonstrates the COWARDICE OF "YATTA's popular committee", for using 14-year-old girls, to stop Israeli military jeeps.' I love you too. The Israelis hit a fourteen year old girl with a jeep, and you blame the girl.

Israeli soldiers arrived at the scene in order to insure "the gathering wouldn't evolve into a violent riot." What a joke, if the soldiers stay away, there will not be a "violent riot", because the israeli soldiers are the only ones who riot.

To Tibi #4: 'This demonstrates the COWARDICE OF "YATTA's popular committee", for using 14-year-old girls, to stop Israeli military jeeps...' The absurdity of your argument would be that even if the Palestinians thought of doing this, the tactic obviously wouldn't work. The IDF has no compunctions about killing women, children, infants, old people, or anyone else.

tO @ #5: 'Because car accidents never happen right?' They do tend to happen when you try to disperse crowds by driving your jeep into them.

Tibi, read the report again. "An Israeli army spokeswoman said 30 Palestinians were gathered in the area, and Israeli soldiers arrived at the scene in order to insure the gathering wouldn't evolve into a violent riot." No riot occurred. Why did the jeep move in? And what carfeless driving by a member of the "most moral army in the world." The girl was there, as was her right, to protest against the stealing of her land. But there you go again - "my country right or wrong." So blinkered!

# 5 - when did you last "encounter" any Pro Palestinian? And when did you last read about a Palestinian jeep hitting a 14 year old Israeli girl? Why was the jeep moving in so close to the crowd? Face facts and grow up!!!

To gabi #13: ' Face facts and grow up!!!' That's kind of an oxymoron. A supporter of Israel who has done this is no longer a supporter of Israel.
