Date: 13 / 09 / 2008

Hebron – Ma’an – Five-year-old Mahran Al-Ja’bari from Hebron was hospitalized on Saturday after an Israeli military vehicle ran him over near his home.

The area where Mahran lives in Hebron is under strict Israeli security control. It is the only area in the West Bank where Israeli settlers have occupied Palestinian homes in the center of the city, resulting in a huge Israeli military presence in the city on a permanent basis.

Palestinian medical sources said the boy sustained critical wounds. He was sent to the emergency unit at Hebron Hospital.
