This is the incredible story of Ahmed Dardona, a resident of Jabalya in the Gaza Strip. He flew to India last month through Ben-Gurion Airport, accompanied by his father for an operation that might save his life.

Israeli authorities, both civilian and military, have assisted Ahmed over the years with his treatment in Israeli hospitals and especially in preparation for his current trip.

The IDF’s Coordination of Government Activities in the Territories (COGAT) team accompanied him and his father when they left Gaza.
