Israeli settler runs over, kills female Palestinian teacher in occupied West Bank

Palestinian sources said the 42-year-old victim, identified as Fatima Suleiman, was fatally struck in the Khirbat al-Dayr district of the town of Tuqu’, located 12 kilometers southeast of Bethlehem, on Thursday morning, Arabic-language Shehab news agency reported. There have been a series of “hit-and-run” incidents targeting Palestinians in different parts of the West Bank over recent months, with most of them going uninvestigated by Israeli authorities. Some of such events have resulted in fatalities. Muhammad Awad, head of the Palestine Red Crescent Society (PRCS), told Palestinian Arabic-language Ma'an news agency that a 20-year-old man, identified as Hamza Shihadeh Najajra, had been struck on Route 60 near Gush Etzion settlement, which lies directly south of Jerusalem al-Quds and Bethlehem in the West Bank, on April 8. Awad added that Najajra, a resident of Nahalin village, had been critically injured in the head and taken to a hospital in Jerusalem al-Quds to receive medical treatment. On November 22 last year, an Israeli army vehicle ran over a young Palestinian man in the West Bank, inflicting injuries on him. The incident occurred as the 21-year-old victim, identified as Rashed Abu Aram, was attempting to cross a road in al-Khalil (Hebron). Two Palestinian workers, identified as Oqab Raji Mahmoud Abed al-Hafith and Ameer Hayel Raji, were struck near the village of Kafr Laqif, located 22 kilometers southwest of Nablus, on October 14, 2018. They were transferred to a nearby hospital to receive medical treatment. Medical sources said Hafith had suffered serious injuries in the head, while Raji had sustained moderate injuries to his head and shoulder.
