An Israeli setter driving a car wounded a Palestinian young man called Jihad Sharawneh, 20, very badly when he deliberately sped up and ran over the young man near Na'lin village west of Ramallah city.
Palestinian eyewitness reported that the settler fled the scene, while the young man was bleeding and groaning with pain, adding that he got fractures in his limbs.
Meanwhile, another Israeli settler on Sunday kidnapped two Palestinian children called Iyad Al-Hindi, 14, and his cousin Bilal Al-Hindi, 17, as they were grazing sheep on the outskirts of the Laban village, east of Salfit in the northern West Bank, according to local sources.
The sources added that the settler took the two children to the Israeli Shilo settlement and let them go after questioning them.
In another context, the IOF troops withdrew Monday morning from the vicinity of the Arab American University in Jenin as well as the towns of Talfit and Zababdeh in the Jenin district after deploying about 200 armored vehicles in the area on Sunday.
The IOF troops alleged that this military operation was not aimed at the university or the surrounding villages, but it was only a military maneuver.
The deployment of tens of Israeli military hardware and troops in the area yesterday had raised fears among the university students and the people of the area who thought it was in preparation for a large-scale invasion of the area.
The IOF troops also invaded at dawn Monday the Tubas town in the West Bank and kidnapped a Palestinian citizen called Mu'een Fukaha, 22, while many military vehicles stormed the Jenin city.
