A six-year-old Israeli girl was injured by a stray bullet while playing in her home in the West Bank settlement of Kochav Ya'akov on Saturday.
Magen David Adom (MDA) paramedics treated the girl, who was then rushed to Hadassah-University Medical Center on Jerusalem’s Mount Scopus for further treatment, according to the hospital.
The Jerusalem medical center added that the young child is in light-to-moderate condition and suffered light wounds to her torso.
Second stray shooting incident in a week
One week ago, a 10-year-old boy was moderately injured on Friday morning by stray gunfire in the village of Ein Mahal in Israel's Lower Galilee. A preliminary investigation by police revealed that unknown individuals opened fire at parked cars, and a stray bullet hit the nearby child.
