An elderly man is lying on an iron bed and covered with a synthetic blanket, in the living room of a stone house in a village outside Bethlehem. His eyes are closed, his face is a mask of pain, his head is bandaged, tubes protrude from his nose. He can barely speak, responding only with hand movements. Eating is nearly impossible because of fractures in his nose, eye sockets and skull. He has trouble sleeping and can’t stand without the support of his sons on both sides.
