One of two Palestinian girls that had been run over by a Jewish settler near Ramallah earlier Sunday in the occupied West Bank died of her injuries, a Palestinian medical official said Sunday.

"Enas Khalil,5, succumbed to injuries she sustained when she was hit by a settler's car," Samir Saliba, head of the emergency department in the Ramallah Medical Complex, told Anadolu Agency.

The other girl is now hospitalized in a stable condition, Saliba added.

According to the eyewitnesses, the settler hit the two girls on the main road near Sinjil town, leaving them badly injured.

The settler fled the scene after the incident, they added.

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.
