A Palestinian child was shot and wounded in Gaza Strip, the Ma’an News Agency reported on Monday.


Coordinator of medical services Adham Abu Salmeyeh reported that the child, age 16, was fired upon by the Israeli army and wounded in the leg while collecting scrap metal in the eastern part of Gaza.

Abu Salmeyeh described the boy’s wounds as moderate and added that he was transferred to the hospital for treatment.

Children are often fired upon while collecting scrap metal to earn a living.
