November 8, 2005
The father of a Palestinian boy shot dead by Israeli soldiers donated the
boy's organs to Israelis awaiting transplants.
"I feel very good that my son's organs are helping six Israelis," Ismail
Khatib said. "I feel that my son has entered the heart of every Israeli."
He said he hoped the gesture would send a message of peace to Israelis
Khatib's son Ahmed, 12, was shot Thursday in Jenin. Soldiers said he
carried a toy rifle and they mistook him for a militant.
