An Israeli police car ran over a young Palestinian girl on the main street of Ain al-Luza neighbourhood in Silwan yesterday, 9 February. Witnesses reported that the police vehicle had been speeding through the streets of Silwan when it ran in to 15 year old Hanin Khalil Ghanayem on her way home from school, pushing her for a distance of approximately 3 metres and then colliding with a Palestinian car.
The incident, which is unfortunately not the first of its kind in Silwan, was well-documented by locals with cameras. Ghanayem was rushed to Hadassah Hospital in Ein Karem.
