A settler boy was critically wounded Sunday in a drive-by shooting incident north of the West Bank city of Ramallah, an  Israeli source reported.

The car was driving on the Ramallah bypass settlement road heading towards Ateret settlement. The shooting took place while the car was passing the “British Police Station” intersection, the source stated.

“Al-Aqsa brigades gunmen, the military wing of Fateh movement, shot and critically wounded a 10-year-old child, while the driver, apparently the father, was driving towards the settlement of Atreet”, an Israeli military source reported.

The driver was lightly wounded by shrapnel.

The boy was hit in the head and underwent surgery at Hadassah Ein Kerem hospital in Jerusalem. The hospital reported that the child is currently in a stable condition.

According to Israeli radio, the gunmen abandoned a car they were driving and set it on fire near Al-Jalazoun refugee camp.
