When it comes to family, nothing else matters.
This man was proof of the saying, and along the way, he warmed the hearts of netizens who came accross his story.
A heart-warming story
An image showing the Palestinian man sitting on a ledge of a hospital to keep an eye out on his mom has touched the hearts of netizens all around the world.
According to a report by Astro Awani
, the man's elderly mother was hospitalised in the Hebron State Hospital in Palestine after she tested positive for COVID-19.
Due to restrictions, the man named Jihad Al-Suwaiti was prohibited from visiting his mother.
However, that didn't stop Jihad, reportedly the youngest child, from scaling the hospital wall and sitting on the ledge every day to keep watch over her sick mother.
His mother was also reportedly suffering from leukaemia.
Unfortunately, there was no happy ending to the story, as the elderly woman reportedly succumbed to her illnesses.
But there's a silver lining to the story though, as Al Jazeera
posted a series of photos showing Jihad managed to see his mother in her room before she passed away:
The man's story tugged at the heartstrings of netizens, with a Twitter user paying tribute to the man and his mother through a beautiful drawing:
Others could just offer their sympathies and share the man's heartbreak:
Thank you, Jihad, for showing us what love is. May your mother rest in peace :')
