An 11-year-old boy arrived this week to the Terem clinic in Jerusalem's Romema neighborhood, complaining of pain and swelling in his hand.
The medical team ruled out a contusion or a falling injury to the hand, and after clarifying with the child it was revealed that three months ago he noticed slight bleeding in the palm of his hand, but did not feel pain.
Now, when the hand swelled and began to hurt, the boy came to be examined. The medical team performed the X-ray and was astonished to find a bullet lodged in the child's hand.
To the medical team's query, the child and his parents could not explain the presence of the bullet. The child was transferred for further investigation and treatment at the hospital, involving police and welfare officials.
