Israeli Hit-and-run settler kills 15 goats
6 August - Mershid (19), son of Muhamad Abdalah Rashid Dawabsheh, checked for oncoming cars and started to cross the road between Nablus and Ramallah with his herd of goats. The time was approximately 5pm and he was leading the herd towards the small village of Duma after a day of grazing. An Israeli car appeared as he was walking down the road but instead of slowing down it picked up speed and drove through the herd, killing 12 goats. When driving through the herd the front bumper including registration plate was ripped from the car. The settler driver stopped his car to retrieve his plate from the ground. As Mershid saw the armed settler he got scared and ran away.
The whole incident was witnessed by Muhamad´s nephew, who was standing some 50 metres from the scene. As he started for the herd, the settler saw him, got in his car, and hit another three goats including the leader of the herd (the only male) as he drove off, leaving registration plate and bumper behind. In all 15 goats were killed and 2 mortally injured, now hovering between life and death...
Do you know how hard it is to run over 15 goats on a road?
Did they all just stand there?
How big a car?
