Palestinian dies after being rammed by Israeli settler

By Salam Abu Sharar

RAMALLAH, Palestine (AA) – A Palestinian worker was killed on Wednesday evening after an Israeli settler rammed his car into him in the occupied West Bank, a local official confirmed.

The incident took place near the village of Kefl-Hares, adjacent to Ariel settlement in the northern Salfit city.

Salfit Governor Abd Allah Kmail confirmed the incident, saying it was intentional.

Kmail held the Israeli occupation accountable for the accident and considered Azzam as “a martyr of Palestine.”

The Israeli police said that an investigation is opened into the circumstances of the incident.

The sources said the man, Azzam Jamil Amer, from Kafr Qalil village, south of the northern West Bank city of Nablus was struck by the Israeli settler’s car, before he was moved to an Israeli hospital where he succumbed to his serious wounds.

The deceased husband, and father, is a day laborer who was returning home from work when the incident took place.

In August of 2020, a young Palestinian man was killed when a speeding Israel settler’s car struck him near a military roadblock, south of Tulkarem, in northern West Bank.

Ariel settlement was first established in 1978 with settlers living there numbering 20,540 in 2019.
