A team of Palestinian surgeons at Al-Makassed Hospital in Jerusalem led by professor Nizar Hajja took out a bullet from the heart of Gazan child, Al-Watan Voice reported yesterday.

Eight-year-old Ibrahim was shot while playing with his friends in the courtyard outside his house in the north of the Gaza Strip two weeks ago.

Due to the lack of medical equipment in Gaza, Ibrahim was transferred to Al-Makassed where he had a six-hour laparoscopy which allowed doctors to remove the bullet.

Prof. Hajja said:

“The bullet was in a sensitive place near the heart and the operation was very dangerous because we did not want to waste the fluid around the heart.”

He added:

“At the end, we took the bullet off successfully.”

    • Unfortunately the world, by and large will not hear about these attrocities because the media is only interested in publishing the suffering inflicted by the state of Israel.

      • So it is up to people like us to tell these stories loud and proud. Make the apartheid zionist supporters debate their support at every chance you get, no matter how uncomfortable they become. This is what the apartheid zionist occupation fears the most. The media is doing their bidding, but we lay people do not and should not
