A child wounded in head by Nazi occupation troops on Thursday January 30th remained in a critical condition in hospital on Saturday February 5th.

15-year-old Mohammad Mohannad Shteiwi was shot in head with a rubber-coated steel bullet by Nazi occupation forces’ soldier during a demonstration against Donald Trump’s ‘Deal of the Century’ plan at Kafr Qaddum village on the illegally Nazi occupied West Bank.

The protest took place near a gate closing the main road from the village to the nearby main towns. The road has been closed by the Nazi occupation since 2003 and is the location of the weekly Friday demonstration in the village.

Protesters burned tires and threw stones, while the Nazi occupation forces attacked them with rubber-coated steel bullets, sponge bullets and tear-gas. Nazi occupation forces are said to have attempted to ambush protesters at the nearby olive grove and to have stormed the village itself.

The bullet hit Mohammad Shteiwi on the right side of his head, penetrated his skull and settled in his brain, leading to a critical injury. He received first aid on site, with a photograph showing massive bleeding.

Because of the Nazi occupation closure of the main road, it should have taken half an hour longer than necessary for the teenager to arrive in a hospital. Previously several deaths have been attributed to the delayed access to hospital care.

But as was revealed by an article on February 7th in +972mag, this time it took even longer to get help: Nazi occupation police officer stopped the car in which Mohammad was being transported to a hospital and forced it to be driven to a nearby illegal colony, where which he was given no first aid. Instead the police officer called a Palestinian ambulance, which took 25 more minutes to arrive.

A trip to hospital that should have taken as little as 15 minutes ended up taking over an hour. From the moment he was shot to his arrival to a hospital in Nablus it took a total of one-and-a-half hours.

After being moved to a hospital in ethnically cleansed Palestine 1948 the next night, and going through surgery, with the bullet removed in operation on Tuesday February 4th, Mohammad Shteiwi remained in critical condition in a hospital Intensive Care Unit on Wednesday February 5th. His father Muhannad told then that Mohammad was unable to speak but was able to move his fingers when he hold his son’s hand.

On July 12th 10-year-old Abdulrahman Yasser Shteiwi was shot in head by Israeli occupation soldier during Kafr Qaddum’s weekly Friday protest – in which the he didn’t take part – leaving him with what now seem to be permanent, severe brain damage.
