A 12-year-old Israeli boy was lightly wounded by a rock thrown by a Palestinian while playing near Abraham’s Well in Hebron on Saturday.
The IDF said it was investigating the matter and looking for the rock thrower.
Noam Arnon, spokesman for Hebron’s Jewish community, released a video showing a man throwing a rock at the well.
Arnon said the boy initially lost consciousness and fell into the water, but was rescued by friends who ran to the Jewish homes in the Tel Rumeida neighborhood to seek help. The boy was transported by a United Hatzalah ambulance to Hadassah-University Medical Center in Jerusalem’s Ein Kerem where he received 10 stitches and underwent tests.
