Per Version Part Deux

Almost a month ago, I brought to you the three different versions of the death of palestinian man Firas Qasqas, in order to show you the palestinian preoccupation with lying.

Now, I have found yet another multi-versioned story being reported exclusively in the palestinian and Arab media.

Version 1: Ma’an News

A Palestinian civilian died last night in the West Bank village of Qibya, of wounds sustained after an Israeli settler ran him over on the bypass road near the village of Ni’lin west of Ramallah, local sources said.

The sources said that 27-year-old Wasfi Al-Khatib sustained was seriously injured on Saturday evening after an Israeli car ran him over near the Hashmon’in settlement. They added that the man was transferred to the governmental hospital in Ramallah where he later died.

The incident came hours after two off-duty Israeli soldiers from the Qiriyat Arba settlement near Hebron were killed. Right wing settlers threatened to take revenge on Palestinians.

Version 2: Alalam

Furthermore, an Israeli settler ran over a Palestinian by his car in a village located northwest of Ramallah in a move widely speculated to be intentional.

Twenty-one year old Vasfi al-Kahtib succumbed to his severe injuries, before being taken to a nearby hospital in the West Bank, Palestinian medics said.

Kahatib was a resident of Nalin village near the Zionist-occupied Moadaim settlement.

Version 3: WAFA

Jewish colonizer ran over a citizen in the West Bank city of west Ramallah, local sources said.

The sources told WAFA that Wasfi al-Khateeb 21, died on Sunday due to his serious wounds as an extremist colonizer deliberately ran over him as he was heading home in the village of Na’alin.

Version 4: Indian Muslims

RAMALLAH, Dec 30 (KUNA) — A Palestinian citizen was deliberately killed on Sunday when an Israeli settler ran him over in Qabiya, near Ramallah.

Ramallah Hospital sources said the victim was identified as Wasfi Al-Khateeb, 25, who succumbed to serious injuries. An Israeli settler was driving his car towards Al-Khateeb and “deliberately” hit him, stressed eyewitnesses.

Bypasses constructed by the Israelis back in 1994 after the Oslo Agreement to secure settlers’ movements at certain points intersect with roads leading to Palestinian towns. Settlers often block these roads.

Settlers frequently attack residents of neighboring Palestinian towns and had recently attacked and injured two Palestinians near Tal Town, adjacent to Nablus.

Once again, I’ll summarize the versions in a handy table.

  Ma’an Alalam WAFA Indian Muslims
Where run over on the bypass road near the village of Ni’lin west of Ramallah in a village located northwest of Ramallah in west Ramallah in Qabiya, near Ramallah
Age of victim 27 21 21 25

At least they can agree that the evil Israeli/Jew settler/colonizer deliberately killed the palestinian. That lie is so predictable, it requires no coordination between the news outlets.
