The Israel soldiers decided to see his life, dragging him through the border fence, then he was flown to Soroka hospital in Beer Shaba, Israel where he spent 16 days in Intensive care, his leg was amputated there as well. The Israeli military (IDF) started using new weaponry, explosive bullets that shatter bones, tissue, destroying veins and arteries, the aim is to create a handicapped community, especially amongst the young male population. Many of the wounded protesters have to undergo multiple surgeries to try to save their limbs, and in some cases amputation is the only solution. Everyone is well aware that Gaza's two million inhabitants are trapped in a cycle of violence and poverty, created by policies and political decisions on both sides. The problems and complications affecting Gaza today are overwhelming. The world, seemingly accustomed to the suffering of the Gazan people turns a blind eye. (Photo by Paula Bronstein )
