HEBRON, Palestine (AA) - A 12-year-old Palestinian child, who was shot and injured by Israeli forces in the occupied West Bank on Wednesday, succumbed to his wounds, according to local residents and the Palestinian Health Ministry.
The child, Mohammed al-Allami, was injured in the chest when Israeli forces opened fire on a vehicle at the entrance of the town of Beit Ummar, north of Hebron (Al-Khalil), said a Palestinian Health Ministry statement.
The Israeli army launch, on daily basis, attacks against Palestinians and their property in the occupied West Bank, while the Palestinian Authority keeps demanding the international community to protect the Palestinian people, who languish for decades under occupation.
