At age 11, his family fled after Israel's Six Day War. In 1975, he returned briefly. 

On arrival, he was joyously welcomed. Tight security accompanied him. He entered through Egypt's Rafah crossing. Symbolically, he kissed the soil and prayed. His stay is short. He'll remain 48 hours. 

After leaving Damascus, he's spent most of his time in Qatar. On arrival he said:

"Gaza, with its martyrs, cannot be described in words." He spoke with tears in his eyes. "There are no words to describe Gaza, to describe the heroes, the martyrs, the blood, the mothers who lost sons."

"I consider this moment my third birth, and I pray to God that my fourth birth will be the moment when all of Palestine is liberated."
