Palestine: Israeli troops shoot Palestinian child in West Bank

22nd May 2013

Israeli troops shot and seriously wounded a 12-year-old Palestinian boy who was walking with his friends in the occupied West Bank on Tuesday, Palestinian security and medical officials told AFP.

They said that Atta Mohammed Sharadeh was hit during one of what have become almost daily attacks against Palestinian youths by Israeli soldiers outside the Jelazoun refugee camp, near Ramallah.

The camp is close to the illegal Jewish settlement of Beit El.

The officials said that he was hit in the chest by a live bullet which exited through his back and was in critical condition in a Ramallah hospital.

Witnesses told Palestinian news agency Ma’an that the boy was walking with school friends when Israeli forces opened fire at the group.

An army spokeswoman said that troops opened fire at a protester about to throw a petrol bomb as dozens of rioters hurled rocks at them.

The boy was transferred to the Palestine Medical Complex in Ramallah for surgery.
