The death of 17-year-old Muhammad Mahmid Qiyan in Umm al-Fahm, who was shot while he was in a car with some friends, sparked outrage in the city and in the Arab community, as undercover police officers were declared responsible for it by the family and community leaders. The Police has not accepted responsibility; the Justice Ministry’s Police Internal Investigations Department opened an investigation.
“We are a family who believes in coexistence, and we wanted to save lives regardless of religion, race and gender,” Dr. Raed Mahmid, an uncle of the boy said Sunday in a release by the National Transplant Center. “We saved six people.”
Qiyan’s heart was transplanted into a 37-year-old at Sheba Medical Center, Tel Hashomer. His lungs were donated to a 66-year-old, also at Sheba. A 69-year-old at Petah Tikva’s Rabin Medical Center-Beilinson Campus received the boy’s liver, while a liver lobe was transplanted into a one-year-old baby at the Schneider Children’s Medical Center for Israel, also in Petah Tikva. Finally, his two kidneys were given to a 16-year-old at Haifa’s Rambam Health Care Campus and to a 35-year-old at the Sourasky Medical Center, Tel Aviv.
According to the Hebrew-website Walla, all the recipients except one are Jewish.
Last week, the family of 56-year-old Yigal Yehoshua, a Jewish man struck with a brick in Lod during riots, also decided to donate his organs.
