Five Palestinians were seriously injured on Thursday after Israeli settlers threw Molotov cocktails at their car south of Bethlehem, medics said, reported on Ma'an news agency.

The injured were all from the Hassan family, and included four-year-olds Iman and Muhammad, their parents Ayman, 37, and Jamila, 25, and Hassan Hassan who was driving, Red Crescent official Abdul Jaafra told Ma'an.

Both children suffered first degree burns, and the adults suffered second and third degree burns, Jaafra said.

The incident happened near al-Arrub refugee camp, he added.

A military source said investigations indicated that Israeli civilians were responsible for the attack.

In Ramallah on Tuesday, the Palestinian Authority cabinet condemned the "continued occupation and settler attacks against our people and their property."
