Israeli soldiers shot, Wednesday evening, a Palestinian child in Jayyous town, east of Qalqilia, in the northern part of the occupied West Bank.

Several army jeeps invaded the town, leading to protests before the soldiers fired live rounds, rubber-coated steel bullets, and gas bombs.

Medical sources said the soldiers shot a child, sixteen years of age, with a live round in the leg before he was rushed to a hospital suffering moderate-but-stable wounds.

The soldiers also closed several roads in the town, prevented the Palestinians from crossing, and installed several roadblocks in some areas in the Qalqilia governorate.
