A 13-year-old Israeli girl who was shot in the head and critically wounded under unclear circumstances in the West Bank settlement of Kiryat Arba last week has been released from a hospital in good condition.

Tamar Aharon fully regained consciousness on Saturday, the Hadassah Ein Kerem hospital says.

Aharon had been rushed to the hospital by Magen David Adom paramedics while unconscious after being hit by gunfire while walking down a street in Kiryat Arba on November 3.

The military believes errant gunfire from the adjacent Palestinian city of Hebron was likely responsible.
