Zionist israeli driver hits Palestinian cyclists; kills one and wounds another
Two Palestinian youth riding their bikes near Salfit Monday were hit by an Israeli driver, killing one and wounding the other.
The victim was identified as Khalil Mousa Amar, 19, a resident of a village near Salfit. His friend and fellow cyclist, age 17, was not identified at the time of this report.
Israeli ambulances which arrived on scene took the wounded Palestinian teenager to an Israeli hospital. Local sources report that no attempt was made by the Israeli occupation to locate or inform the family of the wounded minor’s condition or whereabouts.
Israeli occupation report that the driver of the vehicle was taken in for questioning.
Just last week, a 34-year old Palestinian man was shot and wounded by the Israeli military in the same area, after allegedly attempting to bypass the checkpoint to sneak into the 1948 occupied territories.
Over the past three months, more than 150 Palestinians have been killed by Israeli soldiers and settlers. Much of the West Bank and Jerusalem has been placed under a lockdown by the Israeli military, and Palestinian workers have been prevented from reaching their jobs, while students have been kept out of school by military forces.
