Wounded Israeli toddler dies

18 February 2015, 08:22

Jerusalem - A four-year-old Israeli girl died two years after being seriously wounded when Palestinians threw rocks at the car she was riding in as it drove through the West Bank.

Adele Bitton died on Tuesday soon after she was hospitalised for a lung infection. Her mother Adva was driving her home to a West Bank settlement in 2013 when rocks thrown by Palestinians caused her to crash. She said the infection was a result of the child's wounds.

The Arab medic who treated the family at the scene told the Israeli news website Ynet that he was pained and shocked by her death, calling it "the price of hatred" and calling for coexistence.

Several Palestinian teenagers were arrested for the rock throwing.
