Israeli forces shoot, injure 2 Palestinian minors in Jerusalem

Dec. 5, 2018 4:56 P.M. (Updated: Dec. 6, 2018 12:30 P.M.)
RAMALLAH (Ma'an) -- Two Palestinian minors were shot and injured with Israeli live ammunition on their way home from school in the Jaba neighborhood, east of the central occupied West Bank district of Jerusalem, on Wednesday.

A Ma'an reporter said that the two injured minors, aged 14 and 15, were immediately transferred to Ramallah Hospital to receive necessary medical treatment.

According to medical sources, one of the minors was shot and injured in his shoulder, while the other in the leg.

The reason for the shooting remained unknown.

Rights groups have routinely condemned Israeli authorities for their excessive use of force against Palestinians, including minors, during clashes and incidents which could have been handled without the use of potentially lethal violence.

Prisoners' rights group Addameer estimates that 230 Palestinian minors are currently held in Israeli prisons, of whom 41 are under the age of 16.
