    A Palestinian couple whose son died after being shot by Israeli soldiers have donated his organs to three Israeli patients waiting for transplants.

    Ismail Khatib said his decision to donate his son Ahmad's organs was rooted in his memories of his own brother, who died at 24 waiting for a liver transplant, and in his family's desire to help others, regardless of their nationality.

    "I don't mind seeing the organs in the body of an Israeli or a Palestinian. In our religion, God allows us to give organs to another person and it doesn't matter who the person is," said Khatib, who added that he hoped the donation would send a message of peace to Israelis and Palestinians.

    On Sunday, three Israeli girlsĀ - two of them Jewish and the other DruzeĀ - underwent surgery to receive his lungs, heart and liver.
