A 12-year-old boy from the Jewish community in Hevron was injured Saturday afternoon when an Arab hurled rocks at the victim and at two other Jewish children in Avraham's Spring.

The large rock caused a cut to the boy's head, and he temporarily lost consciousness, falling into the spring. Miraculously, the boy survived the fall.

According to local reports, the two other children quickly ran to ask a neighbor for medical help for the injured boy.

The unconscious boy was taken to Jerusalem's Hadassah Ein Kerem Hospital for treatment. Hospital staff stitched the cuts to the boy's head.

The boy is currently suffering head pain, and has been hospitalized for observation, further testing, and continued treatment.
