A Palestinian man scaled the high walls of a hospital to see his mother for one last time before she succumbed to coronavirus.
A viral image shows Jihad Al-Suwaiti, from the town of Beit Awa in the West Bank, sitting by the Intensive Care Unit's (ICU) window of Hebron State Hospital where she was being treated for COVID-19.
According to reports, 73-year-old Rasmi Suwaiti, died on Thursday evening, shortly after receiving an unexpected visit from her 30-year-old son. The son would wait by the window every night to watch his mother.
The image was shared by Mohamad Safa, a human activist and representative to the United Nations, on Twitter where he said, "The son of a Palestinian woman who was infected with COVID-19 climbed up to her hospital room to sit and see his mother every night until she passed away."
The heart-breaking post went viral, making netizens very emotional. "Tears, nothing but tears for that boys mum but that boy is an angel," said a user.
The State of Palestine has reported over 8000 positive cases of coronavirus with more than 60 deaths.
