An Israeli settler ran over a young Palestinian girl in the West Bank late Sunday, locals told Ma'an news agency.

Red Crescent medics told Ma'an that 6-year-old Islam Basim al-Amour was moderately injured after being run over in the al-Dairat area south of Hebron.

Further details were not immediately available.

In August, an 8-year old Palestinian girl was also run over by Israeli settlers near Hebron and moderately injured in what witnesses said was a deliberate move from the drivers.

A week after that incident, a 23-year-old Palestinian man was run over and killed by a settler car in the central West Bank.

About 550,000 Zionist settlers live in settlements across the West Bank and East Jerusalem on lands largely confiscated from local Palestinian communities.

All settlements in occupied territory are deemed illegal under international law.
