My another brother Rushdi was there... he tried to save Hisham in all sorts of ways, but the sniper shot him and killed him immediately next to my brother Hisham.

He continued: "I saw the scene and the screaming, I went to save one of my brother perhaps one was still breathing, and alive, the people of the neighborhood was highly shouting not to go 'like they said', the sniper will kill you", I did not hear what they mean, I started to pull one of my brother, live bullets was rained the scene by the sniper at me."
