BETHLEHEM (Ma’an) -- Israeli forces shot an 11-year-old boy in the face with a plastic-coated bullet on Thursday during clashes in al-Khader south of Bethlehem, locals said.

Basel Issa was taken to Beit Jala Governmental Hospital for treatment.

An Israeli military spokeswoman said around 30 Palestinians were throwing rocks at soldiers in al-Khader. Soldiers responded with riot dispersal means, she told Ma'an, adding that she was not familiar with any injuries.
