BINTANGNEWS.com –Israeli forces have shot and injured a Palestinian boy for
an alleged stabbing attempt east of the city of
al-Khalil (Hebron) in the occupied West Bank.
Israeli sources said
the child was shot in his abdomen near the entrance to Kiryat Arba settlement
on the outskirts of al-Khalil on Wednesday.
The sources claimed
that an Israeli soldier opened fire on the boy while
he was allegedly trying to carry out a stabbing attack.
sources identified the injured as 13-year-old Haitham Hassan Isa Jaradat. They
said Jaradat sustained a serious injury and had been transported to an Israeli hospital in the occupied Jerusalem al-Quds.
Palestinian territories have witnessed new tensions ever since Israeli forces
introduced restrictions on the entry of Palestinian worshipers into the al-Aqsa
Mosque compound in East Jerusalem al-Quds in August 2015. More than 300
Palestinians have lost their lives at the hands of
Israeli forces in the tensions since the beginning of October 2015.
The Tel Aviv regime
has tried to change the demographic makeup of Jerusalem al-Quds over the past
decades by constructing settlements, destroying historical
sites and expelling the local Palestinian population. Palestinians say the
Israeli measures are aimed at paving the way for the Judaization of the city.***
