Israeli occupation soldiers killed a Palestinian child on Tuesday as they fired rubber-coated bullets near al-Quds (Jerusalem).

"Mohiyeh al-Tabakhi, 12, was killed by shots fired by occupation soldiers in the Al-Ram area near Jerusalem," the Palestinian health ministry said in a statement.

The Palestinian suburb in the occupied West Bank near al-Quds is cut off from the Holy City by the "separation wall" built by Israel.

The boy was hit in the chest by a rubber-coated bullet which caused cardiac arrest, medical sources were quoted by the Palestinian news agency WAFA as saying.

The attack took place during a demonstration by Palestinians in the area, AFP news agency quoted Israeli police spokeswoman as saying.

Earlier on Tuesday, a Palestinian shot after stabbing two Israeli soldiers in the occupied West Bank died of his wounds, a hospital spokeswoman said.

Mustafa Baradeah, 51, lightly wounded the soldiers with a screwdriver before being shot, the army said. He also had a knife in his possession.

Monday's attack took place near Al-Arroub, north of the flashpoint West Bank city of al-Khalil (Hebron).
