BETHLEHEM (Ma'an) -- A Palestinian teen who was shot and injured on Monday after stabbing and severely injuring a 30-year-old pregnant Israeli is in stable condition, a lawyer from the Palestinian Prisoners' Society said Tuesday.

The lawyer said Muhammad Kamel Shaalan, 15, from Bethlehem is being treated at Hadassa Hospital in occupied East Jerusalem for a gunshot wound to his left leg.

Doctors performed surgery on Shaalan, who is still unconscious due to medications.

Shalaan stabbed and moderately injured a 30-year-old pregnant Israeli woman identified as Michal Froman after breaking into a clothing warehouse in the illegal Israeli settlement of Tekoa.

Following the stabbing, an Israeli security guard shot and injured Shalaan, who was at first reported in Palestinian and Israeli media as having been killed.

On Sunday, a suspected Palestinian attacker stabbed and killed an Israeli woman after breaking into a home in the illegal Israeli settlement of Otniel, south of Hebron city.

The attacker fled the scene following the stabbing, however Israeli forces on Tuesday detained a 15-year-old suspect identified as Mourad Adais from the Hebron-district city of Yatta, east of the Otniel settlement.

In response to the two attacks, Palestinians have been banned from working in illegal Israeli settlements in the occupied West Bank, Israel’s army said.

“In light of the daily situation assessment following recent terror attacks, security measures have been taken,” an Israeli army spokesperson told Ma’an.

”As of today, Palestinian workers cannot enter Israeli communities in Judea and Samaria,” the spokesperson said, referring to the occupied West Bank. The duration of the ban could not be confirmed, but the spokesperson told Ma’an the “situation” would be “reviewed on a daily basis.”
