Al Jazeera - A Jewish settler deliberately ran over a group of Palestinian children with his car in occupied Jerusalem, injuring 4 of them.

Witnesses said residents were throwing stones at a number of settlers and attempted to intercept a settler's car, but they were surprised that he drove toward a group of them and ran over them.

A spokesman for the occupation authorities said that the police launched an investigation to find out the causes of the incident but the settler was not arrested.

Settlers have previously committed several vehicular attacks against Palestinian civilians.

This incident comes four days after settlers broke into "The Prophets" Mosque in the village of Beit Fajar, south of Bethlehem in the West Bank, and set fire to the Mosque, damaging prayer rugs and a large number of copies of the Quran, as well as spraying offensive graffiti and slogans on the walls inciting the killing of Palestinians.
