Syrian man's face rebuilt by Israeli doctors

Mohammed is a young farmer from Deraa in Syria where protests against President Bashar al-Assad began in 2011.

Some kind of projectile - he says it came from a Syrian military jet - destroyed the lower part of his face, leaving a bloody mass of tissue.

But a team of Israeli surgeons at Rambam Hospital in Haifa managed to rebuild Mohammed's face using groundbreaking techniques.

Mohammed spoke to the BBC's Paul Adams about the treatment.
