Zionist soldiers shot and critically wounded a Palestinian child during confrontations between enemy forces and protesters in the occupied West Bank.

The child was in the operating room in a “critical condition, after being shot in the head with live ammunition” by Zionist troops on Friday, said the Palestinian health ministry in a statement.

Palestine’s official WAFA news agency identified the child as Abdulrahman Shteiwi, adding that he was 10 years old and was injured during clashes in the village of Kafr Qaddum in the vicinity of Nablus in the northern West Bank.

Residents of Kafr Qaddum regularly hold weekly protest rallies against the ‘Israeli’ closure of a nearby road. Reports by eyewitnesses said that the regime’s soldiers use unusually violent tactics to disperse dozens of protesters on Friday’s rally.

Separately, at least 33 Palestinians were shot and wounded during weekly demonstrations along the Gaza border with the occupation entity on Friday, according to the health ministry in besieged Gaza Strip.
