Israeli Doctors Save 7-Year-Old Jordanian Boy

Amid a diplomatic row between Jordan and Israel over the killing of a Jordanian judge, Israeli doctors last week saved the life of a seven-year-old Jordanian-Palestinian Arab boy.

The Israel Hayom daily reported on Sunday that the boy, who had suffered critical kidney failure, underwent a successful kidney transplant at the Rambam Medical Center in Haifa. His mother was the donor.
