Israeli forces shot dead a Palestinian man and wounded a 12-year-old minor on Tuesday, after they allegedly carried out stabbing attacks and lightly wounded Israelis in occupied East Jerusalem.

A spokesperson from Hadassah Hospital later said that the 12-year-old boy, whose name has not been identified has undergone surgery, and is in critical condition.

Another minor involved in the alleged attack was a 13-year-old who has been detained.

Israeli police said that the situation of the Israeli security guard who allegedly attacked at the Damascus Gate of occupied Jerusalem was moderate.

According to the initial reports, another 50-year-old Palestinian man was also injured by Israeli crossfire.

Including the latest incident, the death toll of Palestinians killed by Israeli forces has risen to 75 and at least 1,700 Palestinians have been injured by Israeli gunfire since Oct.1.
