The 11-year-old suffered serious internal injuries that were misdiagnosed at a Ramallah hospital, the family claims, reports Gulf News.

The boy, Mohammad Bilal Abdul Salam Al Tamimi, who was standing beside his house in the village, took a direct hit from a steel tear gas shell fired by an Israeli army officer deployed on top of a house in his village of Al Nabi Saleh near Ramallah after a non-violent demonstration had ended in the village.

He suffered internal bleeding and finally had to be admitted to the Intensive Care Unit (ICU) of the Palestine Medical Complex (PMC). Before that, however, a medical team of the Red Crescent ambulance had rushed him to Ramallah Emergency Hospital where he was wrongly diagnosed with nothing serious and released only a short while later.

Mahmoud Al Tamimi, Mohammad's uncle, told Gulf News that the condition of the boy deteriorated at night and his parents took him to a private hospital where he was diagnosed with serious injuries in the liver and kidney, which had caused serious internal bleeding and made him unconscious.
