RAMALLAH (Ma'an) -- Israeli forces on Sunday shot and seriously injured a 14-year-old Palestinian boy during clashes in al-Mazraa al-Gharbiya village, northwest of Ramallah in the central occupied West Bank, medical sources told Ma'an.

Medical sources said Adi Kamal Salamah, 14, was shot with a live bullet in the chest, and was taken to Palestine Medical Complex for treatment.

The teen was in serious, but stable condition, medical sources said.

Clashes broke out in the village when Israeli forces entered the area, with Palestinian youth throwing rocks and empty bottles at forces who shot live fire, as well as rubber-coated steel bullets, tear gas and stun grenades at protesters.

At least 2,177 Palestinian children have been injured in direct conflict since tensions broke in October, according the United Nations.

During that same time period, Defense for Children International-Palestine found that at least 41 Palestinian children have been shot dead by Israeli forces, 31 of which were killed during alleged, attempted or actual attacks against Israelis.
