The sources added that the Red Crescent transferred Seif to the hospital for treatment.
The incident comes days after Israeli forces shot and killed a Palestinian man in the city of Nablus following a raid on his home, in addition to killing another and wounding 70 others during a protest against illegal settlement construction in the Nablus-district town of Beita.
Settlers in the illegal settlement of Homish were recently reported to have escalated their attacks against Palestinians and their properties in Burqa.
