A 5-year-old Palestinian child was injured Sunday after being struck by an Israeli military vehicle in the West Bank city of Hebron, according to the Palestinian Red Crescent.

In a statement, the Red Crescent said the child was rushed to the hospital for treatment.

The Palestinian health ministry said the child suffered bruises in her lower part.

There was no comment from the Israeli army on the incident.

Meanwhile, two dozen Palestinians were injured in clashes with Israeli forces in the occupied West Bank, the Red Crescent said.

Most of the injuries were caused by rubber bullets and teargas canisters fired by Israeli forces during the confrontations on Sunday, it said in a statement.

Tension has risen across the Palestinian territories since U.S. President Donald Trump’s decision to officially recognize Jerusalem as Israel’s capital.

Jerusalem remains at the heart of the Israel-Palestine conflict, with Palestinians hoping that East Jerusalem -- now occupied by Israel -- might eventually serve as the capital of a future Palestinian state.
