The Palestinian child whose brother and parents were killed in a July firebombing attack attributed to Israeli Jewish extremists met soccer star Cristiano Ronaldo in Madrid.
Ahmad Dawabshe, 5, arrived at the Real Madrid soccer club headquarters in Madrid Thursday accompanied by his grandfather, where he met a number of players including his idol, the Maan news agency reported.
Ahmad was the sole survivor of a deadly arson on his family home in the northern West Bank village of Duma on July 30. He lost both his parents, Saad and Riham, as well as his 18-month-old brother, Ali, and was only recently released from Israel’s Sheba Medical Center, where he underwent months of treatment.
Four Israelis are on trial for the arson.
