Israeli soldiers shot, on Saturday evening, a Palestinian child in Kufur Qaddoum town, east of the northern West Bank city of Qalqilia.

Medical sources said the soldiers shot the child, Mo’men Morad Eshteiwi, 8, with a rubber-coated steel bullet in his head.

They added that the child was moved to Rafidia hospital, suffering moderate wounds.

The child was shot after several army jeeps invaded the town, attacked many Palestinians who protested the invasion, and fired many rubber-coated steel bullets, gas bombs and concussion grenades at random.
