Jewish settler runs over three Palestinian children in Jerusalem

OCCUPIED JERUSALEM, Three Palestinian children were wounded Friday in the Silwan suburb of Jerusalem when a Jewish settler deliberately ran then over.

Local sources in Jerusalem told PIC that the so called leader of settlers in the Silwan suburb ran the children over as they came out of the mosque after performing their Friday prayers, adding that three of them were suffered medium injuries as a result.

The incident took place after news that an old Palestinian elderly lady from the same suburb succumbed to wounds she sustained two weeks ago during an extensive operation by the IOF in the suburb which lies to the south of the Aqsa Mosque.

Member of the committee to defend the Silwan suburb, Fakhri Abu Diab told Safa news agency that the old lady who died Friday was Haneyeh Odeh, 70 and the mother in law of Samer Serhan who was killed by the IOF during their operation two weeks ago.

He added that Odeh was hit by a stun grenade at the time and the IOF hampered ambulances from reaching the injured on that day.

Odeh was taken at the time to Hadasa (Ain Karem) hospital where she stayed since then until she succumbed to her injury on Friday.
