RAMALLAH (Ma'an) -- The Israeli military court extended the detention of 16-year-old Khalil Youssef Ali Jabarin, on Monday, for another 10 days for further interrogation.

Palestinian Prisoner's Society (PPS) lawyer, Mamun al-Hashim, said that the Israeli military court extended the detention of Jabarin, who carried out a stabbing attack on Sunday, for another 10 days under the pretext of further interrogation.

Al-Hashim added that the Israeli military court held a session at the Hadassah Ein Kerem Hospital, where Jabarin is currently being held.

The 16-year-old sustained serious injuries, in the left side of his body, including under the armpit, in the pelvis and in his leg, as a result of Israeli forces opening fire and shooting him with five live bullets.

The lawyer pointed out that Jabarin is hand-cuffed to the hospital bed by his right hand and by his feet, however, his condition is stable; he is expected to undergo surgery to remove the bullet under his armpit.

Jabarin was detained on Sunday after carrying out a stabbing attack near the illegal Israeli settlement of Gush Etzion, in the southern West Bank district of Bethlehem, during to which one Israeli settler died and another sustained serious injuries.
