Local media sources reported that an Israeli settler ran over a 7-year-old Palestinian girl and injured her at the Qalqilya-Nablus street and she was transferred to the Darwish Nazzal hospital for treatment.

Israeli settlers’ attacks have escalated recently against the Palestinian citizens in the occuiped West Bank including attacking the Palestinian homes, sabotaging their cars, and blocking their roads. 

Since the beginning of 2022, Israeli settlers have carried out more than 290 attacks on Palestinians and their own property in the occupied West Bank, 230 of which caused property damage, and 60 of them caused injuries to Palestinian residents, according to United Nations reports. 

More than 650,000 colonial settlers were distributed among 164 illegal settlements and 124 outposts built on the stolen lands of occuiped West Bank and Jerusalem. 

The West Bank and Jerusalem lands are occupied territories based on International law due to this all Israeli settlement-building activities there are illegal.
