A 16-year-old Palestinian teen was declared clinically dead on Sunday after being critically wounded in West Bank protests a week earlier, reported Palestinian news agency Al Quds.

The teen had been throwing rocks and participating in a violent West Bank protest where police shot him in the leg with a rubber bullet while the teen was running. This caused him to fall and injure his head. The boy has been undergoing treatment at Hadassah Ein Kerem and was declared brain dead on Sunday.

The Al Quds report stated that should the boy pass away, he would be considered a martyr by the Arab community.
