A ten-year-old Palestinian Authority boy “received new life thanks to an Israeli kidney transplant,” according to a statement released by the spokesman of the Schneider Children's Medical Center in Petah Tikva.

The medical team operated on a boy who suffered from kidney dysfunction, was undergoing dialysis and had been waiting for a kidney transplant.

The boy is recovery in the ICU. He is in stable condition.

While Israel regularly conducts such operations on Arabs, the Jewish state is seldom recognized for such efforts.

The father of the boy said that he “had no words to thank the Jewish donor's family” and merely noted that, after many years waiting for a transplant, his son was receiving new life, according to the statement released by the medical center.
