On Sunday, Israeli settlers reportedly shot and injured two Palestinian children in the village of Deir Qaddis, located west of the city of Ramallah in the West Bank. According to the official Palestinian news agency WAFA, the settlers entered the Al-Muhallal area of the village, where they opened fire on residents, resulting in wounds to two children aged 12 and 14. One child sustained a gunshot wound to the foot, while the other was injured in the thigh. Both victims were subsequently transported to a hospital.
Raed Al-Khatib, the head of the West Ramallah Emergency Center, stated that ambulance crews provided initial treatment to the injured children before transferring them to the Palestine Medical Complex in Ramallah for further care. Although both children suffered significant lacerations, their conditions are reported to be stable.
The Colonization and Wall Resistance Commission highlighted that in October alone, Israeli settlers carried out 220 attacks targeting Palestinians and their property in the West Bank. According to data from the Israeli Peace Now rights group, which advocates for peace between Palestinians and Israelis, the West Bank is home to approximately 694,000 settlers, 145 settlements, and 140 random settlement outposts under Israeli occupation.
