A Jewish settler ran over a Palestinian child on Monday night in the West Bank city of Hebron (Al-Khalil), causing him severe injuries; later one announced dead in an Israeli hospital.
Tariq Zebania, 7 years old, was from Tarqumia, west of Hebron (Al-Khalil), and was riding his bicycle by the settlement road near his town. He was struck by a car driven by a Jewish settler who headed into the ‘Adhoura’ settlement after hitting the boy.

The identity of the settler is still unknown.
Local sources report that no efforts were made by the Israeli authorities to apprehend the driver who killed the boy.
