JERUSALEM (Ma'an) -- Israeli forces shot and seriously injured a Palestinian teenager on Thursday during clashes in Abu Dis, a local official said.

Hani Halabiya, spokesperson of a the local popular resistance committees, told Ma'an that an unidentified teenager was shot twice in the stomach and pelvis by Israeli forces during clashes.

The clashes had broken out between youths and Israeli forces near a military post by Abu Dis in East Jerusalem.

An Israeli police spokesperson did not return calls seeking comment.

Located just four kilometers from East Jerusalem's Old City, Abu Dis is now cut off from the city following the construction of Israel's separation wall.

In the West Bank, UN Office for Humanitarian affairs reported that the total number of Palestinian injuries from Oct. 1 to Nov. 9 alone had far surpassed the total number injured during the whole of 2014.

Over 7,000 Palestinians have been injured since the start of October, and 86 have been killed.
