(PALESTINE) - A Jewish settler ran over two Palestinian children near Ramallah in the occupied West Bank, leaving the two girls in a serious condition, eyewitnesses a Palestinian medical official said Sunday.

According to the witnesses, the settler hit the two girls, both aged 5, on the main road near Sinjil town, leaving them badly injured.

Eye witnesses added that the fled the scene after running over Toleen Omar Asfour and Inas Shawkat Khalil, who were returning from kindergarten.

According to the Director of Ramallah medical complex, Ahmed Bitawi, the girls arrived in a coma and medical teams had scrambled to save their lives.

While Toleen Omar Asfour condition is currently stable, 5-year old Inas Shawkat Khalil succumbed to her wounds.

Palestinian and Israeli authorities have not yet commented on the incident.

According to an online source, the driver called the police right away and reported the accident. He claimed to leave the scene because "he was afraid to be lynched by the locals."

Recent months have seen a rise in attacks by Jewish settlers on Palestinians across the occupied West Bank with the Palestinian officials accusing Israeli army and police personnel of turning a blind eye to the assaults.

Last week, Palestinian Prime Minister Rami Hamdallah slammed Israel for failing to bring to account Jewish settlers responsible for a recent wave of vandalism against Palestinian property in the occupied territory.

In Oregon an illegal from Mexico ran over and killed two little girls and left the scene. Was caught, tried, found guilty and received no jail nor was she deported. Now that not only breaks my heart, but I demand justice for all those who have been killed and injured by illegals. So those of you open border people, what happens to your opinion when your ox gets gored?
