An Israeli settler on Sunday reportedly ran over a Palestinian teen in Yatma village in southern Nablus, a local monitor of settlement activity told Ma'an.
Ghassan Daghlas, who monitors settler activities in the northern West Bank, said that an Israeli settler ran over Muhammad Mustafa Najjar, 19, and then fled the scene.
Daghlas added that the teen, who was moderately injured, was taken to Rafidia hospital in Nablus.
Settler violence has come under international scrutiny after an arson attack carried out by settlers last month in the southern Nablus village of Duma killed an 18-month-old infant and his father. The infant's mother and brother remain in critical condition.
Following the attack, Israeli human rights group B'Tselem said that the deadly attack has been "only a matter of time," pointing to a culture of impunity for Israeli settlers.
The perpetrators of settler violence against Palestinian civilians and their property -- both inside of Israel and the occupied territories -- are rarely punished, with police closing the majority investigations without an indictment.
Israeli settlers have carried out at least 133 attacks on Palestinians in occupied East Jerusalem and the West Bank and their property since the start of 2015, according to the UN Office for the Coordination of Humanitarian Affairs.
