Israeli soldiers shot, Sunday evening, a Palestinian child in the Al-Khader town, south of Bethlehem, in the occupied West Bank.

Local nonviolent activist, Ahmad Salah, said many army jeeps invaded the at-Tal area in the town, leading to protests.

Salah added that the soldiers fired live rounds, including expanding bullets, rubber-coated steel bullets, and gas bombs.

Medical sources have confirmed that the soldiers shot a child, 15, with a Dumdum expanding bullet in the leg before he was rushed to Beit Jala governmental hospital.
