An Israeli settler shot and seriously injured a Palestinian teenager Tuesday after a settler demonstration on the outskirts of Beitin village east of Ramallah.
Ibrahim Mahmoud, 16, was shot with a live bullet and taken to Palestine Medical Complex with serious injuries. He is now stable and was placed in the ICU.
An Israeli army spokeswoman said she was looking into the report.
Earlier a Palestinian man was stabbed by a group of Israelis in north Jerusalem.
Fadi Jalal Radwan, 22, was attacked and stabbed by four Israelis while walking in the town of Kafr Aqab, his father said. He was stabbed three times in the legs, and once in the back.
The victim was found bleeding in the street and taken to Hadassah hospital for treatment. Doctors said he was in a serious condition.
Israeli police spokesman Micky Rosenfeld told Ma'an that "an Arab man was approached by three suspects" who asked him for light. They then stabbed him in the leg with a small knife.
Israeli police are looking into the background of the incident, Rosenfeld added.
