Settlers go unpunished for such crimes
An Israeli Jewish settler ran over an elderly Palestinian man on Wednesday evening in the highway leading to Bethlehem in occupied West Bank.
The Palestinian Red Crescent (PRC) in Bethlehem said that the elderly Palestinian was hit by a speeding settler’s car and left him dead.
Palestinian sources identified the elderly Palestinian as Suleiman Hammad, 81, from the town of Al-Khader in the outskirts of Bethlehem.
Eyewitnesses said that the elderly Palestinian wanted to cross the road when the Israeli Jewish settler took the side of the road and hit him.
“It was clear that the Israeli Jewish settler intentionally ran over the elderly Palestinian as he had taken the side of the road where the man stood before crossing the road,” an eyewitness said.
Israeli settlers do not hesitate to run over Palestinians when they find any opportunity and they are encouraged to do so because none has ever been punished by the Israeli occupation authorities over such crimes.
