The Palestinian ministry of health identified the boy as Abdullah Geith and said that the Israeli occupation forces shot him with a liver bullet that penetrated his chest and damaged his heart.

Witnesses and relatives told Palestine Post 24 that the boy, from the West Bank city of Al-Khalil, as travelling to Jerusalem in order to perform the Friday prayer at Al-Aqsa Mosque.

Meanwhile, the Israeli occupation forces opened fire at the Palestinians crossing Qalandia Checkpoint near Ramallah and wounded the 21-year-old Palestinian Momen Tbeesh.

According to the Palestinian ministry of health, Tbeesh sustained serious injuries.

It is worth noting that tens of thousands of Palestinians are travelling to Jerusalem in order to perform the prayer of the last Friday of the holy month of Ramadan.

The Israeli occupation is imposing strict measures to undermine their arrival to the holy city, which is open to the extremist Jewish settlers along the year.
