A preliminary probe into the incident shows the Palestinians were likely hit by IDF gunfire aimed at two other Palestinians who opened fire toward the West Bank settlement, the Israeli military said, stressing its intent to avoid civilian casualties as much as possible.

An MDA helicopter was launched to the scene, and personnel are providing medical treatment to the wounded. The Red Crescent evacuated the father in serious condition to a hospital in Ramallah, Israeli media said.

The toddler was taken to Sheba Medical Center for treatment.
