Musa is the youngest patient to undergo heart transplant surgery at Sheba Hospital and the first Palestinian baby to received a heart from a Jewish child.

A gravely-ill six-month-old Palestinian baby is fighting for his life after receiving a heart transplant from a Jewish child.

The surgical team at Israel’s Sheba Hospital in Ramat Gan are waiting, hoping and praying after a unique operation – the first time heart transplant surgery has been performed on such a young child at the hospital and the first time a Palestinian baby has received a heart transplant from a Jewish child.

The Palestinian boy, Musa, has a fighting chance at a long life thanks to Israeli generosity and medical care.
