An autopsy on the body of an 11 year-old child who was killed on Tuesday by Israeli gunfire in the village of Ni’lin, near the central West Bank city of Ramallah, revealed that the child was shot by a live round.

The Palestinian News Agency, WAFA, reported that Ramallah governor, Sa’id Abu Ali, said on Wednesday that the autopsy revealed that the live round which hit the boy was fired from an M16 assault file.

The boy was shot by the soldiers who attacked a peaceful protest against the Israeli Annexation Wall in the village.

At least ten Palestinians were wounded during the protest. Three of the wounded are said to be in stable condition. The army claimed that two soldiers were mildly wounded.

Soldiers also kidnapped Mohammad Abdul-Qader of the Popular Committee Against the Wall and Settlements.
