Medical sources said the child was shot with a live round in his thigh was he was standing in the balcony of his home.

They added that the child’s home is not even close to the area where the army attacked protesters and fired many live rounds, rubber-coated steel bullets and gas bombs at them, but one of the soldier’s bullets struck him from a distance.

The wounded child, only thirteen years of age, received the urgently needed treatment and was moved to a hospital in Ramallah.
