14-year-old Palestinian attackers in serious but stable condition

JERUSALEM (Ma'an) -- Two 14-year-old Palestinians shot while carrying out a deadly stab attack in an illegal Israeli settlement northeast of Jerusalem are in serious but stable condition, a lawyer said Friday.

Karim Ajwa, a lawyer for the Palestinian Authority's Committee for Prisoners’ Affairs, told Ma'an the boys were being held in separate hospitals in Jerusalem.

Omar Rimawi, 14, is currently being treated at Hadassah Hospital's Ein Kerem branch, and Ayham Subih, also 14, in Shaare Zedek Hospital.

The PA committee said that Ajwa was expected to attend a Friday court hearing at Ofer detention center's military court regarding both of their detention.

Rimawi and Subih were shot by an armed Israeli civilian after stabbing two Israelis in the Rami Levi supermarket in the Shaare Benyamin industrial zone in the occupied West Bank on Thursday.

The attack killed a 21-year-old off-duty Israeli soldier and left a 17-year-old in moderate condition.

According to documentation of attacks by Israel’s domestic security agency Shin Bet, the 14-year-olds were the youngest Palestinians to kill an Israeli since a wave of unrest spread in October, Israeli media reported.

The unrest has been marked by small-scale attacks carried out by Palestinian individuals, the majority of whom have been shot dead on scene.

More than 30 of the over 170 Palestinians to be killed since October have been under the age of 18, a number of whom were killed during clashes with Israeli military forces.
