RAMALLAH (Ma'an) -- Israeli forces shot and wounded a 14-year-old Palestinian boy with live fire during clashes in the outskirts of Silwad in eastern Ramallah on Monday afternoon, medics told Ma'an.

Ambulance crews said that Ahmad Jamal Qantawi, 14, was shot and wounded in his stomach, leg, and hand, and had suffered severe loss of blood.

The boy was reportedly evacuated by an ambulance from Israel's emergency services, Magen David Adom.

The clashes broke out between Palestinian schoolchildren and Israeli forces at the western entrance to Silwad.

Thousands of Palestinians have been shot and wounded by Israeli forces since a wave of unrest swept the occupied Palestinian territory at the beginning of October.

The Israeli army has come under repeated criticism over its violence toward children.

Defense for Children-Palestine said in a report in September that Israeli forces and Jewish extremists had killed at least 1,991 children since 2000.
