Sgt. Adham Saab, 21, dreamt of volunteering to serve in the IDF since the age of 10, but one month after beginning his service, he was attacked in his Bedouin village by more than 10 men who disapproved of his choice to serve.
“They cursed at me and yelled, ‘bastard soldier’ and then they hit me in the head with a metal bar and I lost consciousness,” said Saab. “I haven’t been back to my village since the attack….My family left the village after a few months.”
Saab now lives in Kibbutz Nir-Eliyahu.
