Abdullah, 13, lost a leg to an Israeli sniper bullet. He’s not a cute kid who had a tragic accident. His story is the horror that Gaza has become for nearly every family.
Yousef Kronz was well within Israel’s designated “safe zone” in Gaza, wearing a Press vest, when he was shot in both legs. A young man who ran to help him was shot in the leg as well. Then Israel refused Yousef passage to the West Bank for treatment that would have saved at least one of his legs.
Two young Palestinian men are in danger of losing their legs if they remain in Gaza hospital; this constitutes a violation of their right to life and health, and is a violation of international humanitarian law and international human rights law.
