A Palestinian man was killed on Thursday after being knocked down by an Israeli settler car near an illegal settlement in the central West Bank, Ma’an news agency reported.

Palestinian security sources told Ma'an that Mohammed Abdel Karim Mohammed Abu Isleim, 23, was hit while trying to cross a street near the settlement of Barkan in Salfit.

Israeli police officers and ambulances arrived at the scene and tried to save the victim, but he was pronounced dead.

Palestinian Authority police are investigating the incident to determine whether the settler deliberately hit the victim.

On August 7, a settler ran over and injured an 8-year old Palestinian girl with their car in the southern West Bank. Residents said they believed the driver had deliberately hurt the girl.
