Israeli Soldiers Shoot, Critically Injure 14-year-old Girl (GRAPHIC VIDEO)

The 14-year-old was identified as Yasmin Rashad al-Zarou.

Israeli forces on Sunday shot and injured a 14-year-old Palestinian girl near Hebron city’s Ibrahimi Mosque after an alleged attempted stabbing attack in the southern occupied West Bank, an Israeli police spokesperson said.

Local Palestinian sources provided a conflicting report, and told Ma’an the 14-year-old and her sister were together, and neither had attempted an attack when they were shot.

Locals said the two girls had crossed an Israeli military checkpoint known as 160, after which the girls walked a few meters past the checkpoint, when Israeli soldiers fired six rounds at the 14-year-old who was walking away from the soldiers, critically injuring her.

Israeli media reported that no Israelis were injured during the incident.

The 14-year-old was identified as Yasmin Rashad al-Zarou.

She was evacuated from the scene by Israeli forces.

Minutes after the attack, a graphic video of the injured girl surfaced on social media.

Hours earlier, Israeli forces shot and killed a 17-year-old Palestinian after the teen allegedly attempted to stab an Israeli soldier at a checkpoint north of Bethlehem, official Palestinian sources said.

The Palestinian Ministry of Health identified the teen as as Naim Ahmad Yousif Safi from the town of al-Ubediya, just east of Bethlehem.

It was unclear whether the teen died on site or later as a result of his wounds.

    I am very saddened to know that all the Palestinian people are suffering at the hands of these brutal monsters! We grieve when we hear about what is happening. As fellow Muslims and compassionate human beings we are all helpless to assist.

    Innocent lives are being taken or tortured and imprisoned. Homes and families destroyed.

    We will contintue to pray for you in our Duas to Allah SWT. May Allah SWT have mercy on you all. Amin.
