Palestinian man seriously hurt after settlers pelt his car with stones – PA official

A Palestinian man was critically wounded after Jewish settlers pelted his car with stones as he drove through the West Bank on Wednesday, causing him to veer off the road and crash, Palestinian officials say.

Raid Kharaz lost control of his vehicle when rocks hurled by settlers smashed through the windshield near the West Bank village of al-Mughayir, according to Ghassan Daghlas, a Palestinian Authority official who monitors settler violence.

Kharaz was flown to a nearby hospital, while his son, who was also in the vehicle, sustained lighter injuries, the official Palestinian Wafa news agency reports.

The Israeli army refers questions to the police, who do not immediately respond to a request for comment.
