6 Palestinian workers injured after Palestinian contractor runs them over

TULKAREM (Ma’an) -- Six Palestinian workers sustained injuries after a Palestinian contractor with Israeli citizenship attacked them and ran them over with his vehicle during a dispute over financial issues near the al-Tiba military checkpoint south of Tulkarem in the northern occupied West Bank on Monday.

A dispute erupted between one of the workers and the contractor on the Israeli side of the checkpoint over financial issues, when the contractor attacked the worker with a screwdriver.

Five Palestinian workers present at the scene tried to stop the contractor and help the other worker, when the contractor got into his vehicle and ran over the six workers.

The injured workers were transferred to Israeli hospitals where their injuries were described as ranging between moderate and serious.

The Palestinian liaison office told Ma’an that they were is currently working on solving the issue with Israeli forces, as the contractor is a holder of Israeli citizenship and therefore cannot be detained by Palestinian forces.

An Israeli border police spokesperson was not immediately available for comment.
