A firebomb attack on a car in the occupied West Bank left an Israeli girl severely burned and her father injured on Thursday, the Israeli military said.

The Israeli military said the attack was near the Ma'ale Shomron Jewish settlement, north of the West Bank city of Nablus.

Video footage of the incident obtained by Reuters TV showed fire fighters trying to douse the flames engulfing a vehicle on the side of a road after darkness fell.

The military did not say whether the victims of the attack were settlers, who are bitterly resented by many Palestinians.

On Wednesday, Israel launched an air strike and tank fire in southern Gaza and killed a Hamas fighter after an attack on border patrol.
