The staff of the trauma unit stabilized his condition and later in the night underwent urgent neurosurgical surgery.

Dr. Guy Alor, a senior neurosurgeon at Hadassah Ein Kerem, who operated on the boy, said: “The 9-year-old turns to us from Ras al-Amud when he is unconscious with signs of increased intracranial pressure, and a CT scan revealed that a bullet from a firearm was stuck in his head , And endangers his life.
