Video shows settler running over Palestinian attacker


JERUSALEM (JTA) — A video circulating on the World Wide Web shows an Israeli settler driving a car over a Palestinian who stabbed the man’s wife.

An amateur photographer filmed the video, which was broadcast Wednesday night on Israel’s Channel 2.

The video showed the car running over the Palestinian man several times, finally stopping with a tire still on top of him. 

The Palestinian was shot and was lying on the ground injured after stabbing two women at a gas station outside the Jewish settlement Kiryat Arba on Nov. 26. The attacker, who arrived in a taxi, carried a knife and an ax and reportedly shouted "Allahu Akbar, or "God is great," before he began stabbing the women.

The driver, David Mizrahi, was arrested. He faces charges of attempted murder.

The Palestinian and the two women were taken to Hadassah-Ein Kerem Hospital for treatment. The Associated Press reported that the Palestinian man was in serious condition from the bullet wounds, and that the injuries sustained from the car were less serious.
