Dubai: A 16-year-old Jordan boy was critically injured on Wednesday after he was stabbed in the neck during a fight in Al Qweismeh, Amman, local media reported.

The teenager was transferred to Al Bashir Hospital and his condition is critical due to a large wound in the neck area and nonstop bleeding. He has undergone two surgeries to stop the bleeding.

An investigation is currently underway. Police launched a hunt for the culprit.

The stabbing comes hours after a brutal axe attack on a 15-year-old boy in the Marj Al Hamam neighbourhood in Amman, and two months after a 16-year-old boy was assaulted by a group of men who chopped off his forearms and gouged out his eyes in Zarqa.
