An Israeli settler ran over an 8-year old Palestinian girl with their car in the West Bank early Thursday, medics told Ma’an news agency.

Sources at the Hebron Public Hospital in the southern West Bank said that Rosy Talab Jaber was moderately injured when a settler ran into her with his car.

Residents believed the settler deliberately ran her over.

Hate crimes by Israelis against Palestinians, referred to as “price tag” attacks, are common in the West Bank, and are rarely investigated or prosecuted by Israel.

Since the abduction and killing of three Israeli teens in June, attacks on Palestinians by Israelis have become more violent. On July 2, at least three Israelis abducted 16-year old Mohammed Abu Khudair and burned him alive.
