Palestinian minor suffers serious injury during Israeli raid

JERUSALEM (Ma'an) -- A 13-year-old Palestinian was shot and injured with Israeli live fire during violent clashes between Israeli forces and Palestinian youths in Hizma town, in the central occupied West Bank district of Jerusalem, on Tuesday evening.

Local sources told Ma'an that a large number of heavily armed Israeli forces raided Hizma town and sealed off its entrance, preventing passage in both directions.

Sources said that following the seal off, clashes erupted among Israeli forces and Palestinian youths, during which soldiers opened fire, injuring the 13-year-old boy.

The injured Palestinian minor, whose identity remained unknown, was transferred to the Hizma medical clinic for necessary medical treatment. However, he was then transferred to Ramallah Governmental Hospital due to his serious injury.

Medical sources confirmed that the minor suffered a serious injury in his knee. His medical condition remained unknown.

In addition, sources said that Israeli forces demolished three Palestinian-owned agricultural structures at the Hizma’s entrance and distributed dozens of demolition notices throughout the town.
