After the sniper shot and severely wounded Mohammed’s brother, the Israeli military truck ran over his head and crushed his skull as he bled to death. Five months later, during another fierce attack on the Jenin refugee camp, an Israeli sniper killed his father. With one shot in the chest, his life was taken. When I ask Mohammed about his dream, he answers, ‘to die as soon as possible to finally have some rest. And to get reunited with my beloved father and brother, so they can pinch my cheeks again.’
