A 12-year-old boy was stabbed and moderately injured in Jaffa on Saturday evening, with police arresting his twin brother on suspicion of the assault during an alleged fight in their family home.

Paramedics called to the scene found the child semi-conscious and suffering from a stab wound, according to the Magen David Adom ambulance service.

Medics took the boy to Wolfson Medical Center in Holon in moderate and stable condition.

Police opened an investigation into the incident and arrested the twin brother as a suspect.

In a separate incident over the weekend of violence in the Arab community involving children, a 5-year-old boy and a 26-year-old man were lightly to moderately injured Friday evening by gunfire in the northern city of Umm al Fahm.

Three suspects in that incident were arrested early Saturday morning in the nearby town of Arara, with police officers finding firearms, ammunition, vehicles and equipment during a raid. Police were expected to request a court to extend their remand, Hebrew media reported Saturday evening.

In a separate incident on Friday, a 12-year-old boy was badly injured by a hand grenade explosion in the Bedouin-majority town of Rahat in southern Israel. The circumstances of the blast were unclear.

First responders rushed the boy to a Beersheba hospital with stomach wounds and police opened an investigation.
