BETHLEHEM (Ma'an) -- A man shot on Tuesday by Israeli forces is due to undergo spinal surgery, his relatives say.
Ala Abu Khalifa was critically wounded this week after being shot during an Israeli arrest raid in Jenin refugee camp. He was hit by a dumdum bullet which caused severe damage to his spinal cord, his mother told Ma'an.
He has lost all feeling in his lower body since the injury and has already undergone two operations on his colon and pelvis, she added.
Karim Sbeih, who was critically wounded by Israeli forces during the same incident, has had part of his kidneys, colon, lungs and liver removed, his brother told Ma'an.
Both men were shot after Israeli forces raided the Jenin camp at 3 a.m. and broke into the home of Islamic Jihad leader Bassam al-Saedi.
Majd Mohammad Anis Lahlouh, 22, was killed during the raid, after being shot in the heart by Israeli soldiers.
