RAMALLAH (Ma'an) -- A Palestinian who was injured in the head with a live bullet on Friday during clashes in the village of Silwad in the central occupied West Bank district of Ramallah was reported to be in serious but stable condition, according to a statement released by the Palestinian Prisoner’s Society (PPS) on Saturday.

The injured Palestinian was identified by PPS as 19-year-old Jihad Muhammad Hammad.

A PPS lawyer who had visited Hammad at Israel’s Hadassa Ein Karem hospital on Saturday said that the teenager had undergone surgery. He added that while Hammad was in stable condition, he remained unconscious.

Rights groups have routinely condemned Israeli authorities for their use of excessive force against Palestinians, including minors, during clashes.
