Syria war victim given new jaw in Israel

More than 1,500 victims of the conflict in Syria have received medical treatment in Israel since the country's bitter civil war began.

Mohammed is a young farmer from Deraa, where protests against President Bashar al-Assad started back in 2011.

He was taken to Haifa after some kind of projectile - he says it came from a Syrian military jet - destroyed the lower part of his face.

Three months later, his face has been reconstructed and he can talk thanks to a titanium lower jaw forged on a 3D printer.

Paul Adams reports.
