This case is so serious, and he lives with Iraqis who are in similar situations.

Fadil: Between al-Qa`ida and Jaysh al-Mahdi

Fadil is a 34 year old single man. He entered Jordan December 17, 2009 from Baghdad, Gazalia City.

His eldest brother was killed in the Iran-Iraq war in 1987. His second brother was killed in 2005 while working in the US army.

His mother died in 1997, and his father died in 2001.

He has no surviving siblings.

In June 2003, Al-Qaeda shot his leg. The doctor was forced to amputate it below the knee.

In December 2008, the Jaysh al-Mahdi militia group came to his home to ask him to be member. He refused.

In March 2009, 4 members of  Jaysh al-Mahdi came to his home to kill him. They used a sword to wound his head, neck, chest, arm and leg. The first page of the medical report made on examination is available. After they left, his neighbors immediately came to help him. They wrapped him in a blanket and then took him to the morgue. His neighbors thought Fadil died as they saw a lot of blood. Fortunately, he recovered. As Fadil was a sports instructor, he had good health.

Until today, he has nightmares about the four who came to kill him.

He and his housemates are not able to work at all. Cash assistance is just 75 JD. We have to help them monthly. Yesterday, we found an apartment which is cheaper and closer to us so that we can watch over them better.

We still need many things for their house. Some still owe several months’ rent. Please support us.
