At Cast Lead, Israeli’s military attack on Gaza, which caused 313 deaths amongst children, there was insufficient medical treatment available due to overcrowding in the hospitals. One of the victims of the war is Fadi Al-Arir. 14 year old boy, who had his left leg amputated because his treatment was not correct. Fadi’s injury was caused by some undetonated explosive device he found with his friends, while they were playing around the house.
In 2010 he was in a group of the children who visited rehabilitation centre in Ljubljana, Slovenia. A reason for his visit was rehabilitation and instructions, led by group of therapists, how to use prosthesis for a replacement of his leg. He is recovering moderately good, while his prosthesis is already too small for him to use. In June 2011, Fadi completed his exams, having a free time with his friends and he aims to be a construction engineer in the future.
Med operacijo Cast Lead, Izraelskem vojaškem napadu na Gazo, ki je botrovalo 313 smrtnim žrtvam med otroci, je bila zdravniška oskrba nezadostna, zaradi prevelike zasedenosti bolnic. Ena izmed žrtev je Fadi Al-Arir. 14 letni deček, ki je nad kolenom izgubil levo nogo. Amputacija, zaradi nezadostne zdravniške oskrbe. Fadijevo poškodbo je povzročilo, takrat še neeksplodirano eksplozivno sredstvo, ki ga je našel skupaj s prijatelji med igro okrog hiše.
Leta 2010 je bil Fadi član skupine, ki je obiskala rehabilitacijski center Soča, v Ljubljani. Razlog njegovega obiska je bila rehabilitacija in napotki za uporabo proteze, ki nadomešča njegovo levo nogo. Fadijevo okrevanje je razmeroma dobro, protezo pa je že prerasel. Leta 2011 je v Juniju Fadi končal s poukom in testi, kar mu daje prosti čas za druženje s prijatelji in razmišljanje o prihodnosti, v kateri se vidi kot gradbeni inženir.
