Fourteen stitches in the head of Izz a-Din Zinadin, six stitches in the head of his father, Mohammed. Father and son, two farmers on the way to plow their land. Mohammed is 70 years old, the father of 11 children; his son, Izz a-Din, is 43 and has seven children. The father was beaten by settlers in front of his son. He heard his shouts and saw a settler continuing to pound his father with a club even when he had fallen to the ground, but couldn’t come to his aid because he, too, was being beaten.
