A 12-year old Israeli boy was lightly injured by a Palestinian rock thrower while playing in the afternoon by Abraham’s well.

The IDF said it was investigating the matter and was  looking for the rock thrower. Hebron’s Jewish community spokesman Noam Arnon released a video which showed a man throwing a rock at the well.

Arnon said the boy initially lost consciousness and fell into the water but was rescued by his friends who ran to the Jewish homes in the Tel Rumedia neighborhood to seek help. The boy was transported by a United Hazalah ambulance to the Hadassah Medical Center at Ein Karem where he received 10 stitches and is undergoing further tests.
