Malik was shot on Saturday 15/2/2020 while he was heading home with his sisters to their house in Al-Issawiya after the end of their school day, and after the bus stopped at the station they entered a nearby grocery to buy necessities, and after leaving Malik was targeted with a rubber bullet that hit him in the face, which led to the loss of his eye and bleeding in the brain and a broken skull.
Later on Sunday, February 23-2020, doctors eradicated the left eye of Malik Wael Issa, as a result of the injury.
Doctors were unable to suture the internal wound of the eye, last week in two surgeries they tried to suture the wound to keep the eye in but their efforts failed.
so doctors decided to eradicate the eye, because keeping it was a danger to his life, as it is possible that the internal wound may become inflamed and inflammation may extend to the brain and the right eye due to fractures of the skull.
