Israeli forces assaulted a Palestinian child in the northern West Bank village of Silat al-Harithiya, northwest of Jenin, on Friday, confirmed the child’s father.
Israeli forces, who set up a checkpoint at the Jenin-Haifa Street, pepper-sprayed Amjad Yousef Zyoud, 15, in the face and assaulted him.
Zyoud was rushed to Jenin Government Hospital for treatment.
Israeli forces frequently pepper-spray Palestinian protestors and journalists across the West Bank.

Although considered a “non-lethal” weapon, pepper spray is a powerful inflammatory agent that can cause serious injury and even contribute to death.
