Khaled Musa Najef, one of the four patriarchs of the Palestinian cave village of Qawawis in the Southern Hebron Hills of the West Bank. In 2001 he was allegedly shot in the stomach by an Israeli settler from the nearby caravan outpost settlement of Mitzspe Yair. Unable to find suitable medical facilities in the West Bank and denied medical treatment in Israel, he eventually spent thirty three days in a hospital in Baghdad. The villagers here are attempting to maintain their traditional way of life despite alleged harassment from the surrounding Israeli settler community.
