Israeli soldiers shot and injured, on Monday evening, a Palestinian child, in the al-Ram town, northeast of Jerusalem, and also kidnapped a young man from his home in the town.
The soldiers fired many live rounds, rubber-coated steel bullets, concussion grenades and gas bombs. Many Palestinians suffered the effects of tear gas inhalation.
The Red Crescent said the soldiers shot a child, 15 years of age, and prevented its medics from approaching him. He hasÂ been identified as Fuad al-Ja’bari.
The soldiers then assaulted the wounded wounded child, and took him to an unknown destination.
The extent of the childâ€™s injuries remains unknown, as the Palestinian medics were not even allowed to get close to him. Initial reports indicate he was shot in his thigh.
The soldiers also assaulted a young man, while standing at the door of his home, and kidnapped him.
