Israeli doctor reflects on saving Palestinian baby
Advertisements [?]
Set against the backdrop of the 2007 conflict between Hamas and Fatah, which resulted in hundreds of Qassam rockets being fired at Israeli towns, Precious Life, directed by Israeli television reporter Shlomi Eldar, follows the quest to save Mohammed Abu Mustafa, a four-month-old Palestinian boy from Gaza who was born without an immune system.

When Eldar, a Channel 10 Gaza correspondent, received an urgent phone call from Somech asking him to broadcast a plea to Israelis that Mohammed will die unless he was able to fund a $55,000 bone marrow transplant, Eldar jumped at the story.

His news report resonated with an anonymous Israeli man whose son, a soldier, had been killed in the line of duty. He donated the entire amount.

Somech emphasized that although the film only shows the treatment of one patient, this is not an isolated incident. We have many patients from the Palestinian Authority.
