Earlier today, a six year old Palestinian boy called Salah travelled with his mother from Gaza to an Israeli hospital near Tel Aviv. Meanwhile, terrorists in Gaza fired a rocket towards the city. The Iron Dome defence system intercepted the rocket, but a vehicle outside the hospital was damaged by shrapnel.
Salah is a patient of the Israeli charity Save A Child’s Heart. He has a complicated heart disease and needs life-saving heart surgery. He was admitted to the pediatric cardiac ward at the hospital and will undergo his surgery in the coming days.
There are three other children from Gaza at the same Israeli hospital, two recovering from life-saving heart surgery and one who is waiting for his operation, all brought in by Save A Child’s Heart.
