JERUSALEM (Ma'an) -- A young Palestinian was hospitalized late Tuesday after an Israeli soldier shot him in the head with a rubber-coated bullet in the al-Tur neighborhood of East Jerusalem, witnesses said.

Medics told Ma'an the unidentified young man sustained a skull fracture, and was in moderate-to-serious condition.

Separately, Israeli troops fired tear gas and rubber-coated bullets at Palestinian mourners during a funeral in the al-Tur neighborhood, witnesses said.
