A six-year-old girl from the Al Aasam Bedouin tribe was brought unconscious to the Soroka University Medical Center in Beersheba. Doctors worked to resuscitate the girl, but to no avail, and they were forced to declare her dead.
Her father, who brought her in, claims the child was run over by an unmanned tractor which rolled over her after being improperly parked.

Traffic police investigators arrived at the hospital to investigate the circumstances of the child's death.
Last Monday a four-year-old was killed after being hit by a vehicle in the Beduin city of Rahat in the Negev. The driver is suspected to be the child's father. According to the man, he was driving his car, and suddenly heard screaming. He stopped the car and noticed he hit his son.
The child was taken to the Rahat Medical Center where he was pronounced dead. The circumstances of the accident are being investigated.
Only a day beforehand, last Sunday two girls were seriously wounded after being involved in a car crash in the central city of Ramla. The two received medical care on the scene at the hands of MDA paramedics. The police are currently investigating the event's circumstances.
