After a long journey to Jordan for treatment, Ahmed returned to his hometown of al-Yadoudah in the countryside of Daraa with a prosthetic leg after doctors were forced to amputate his limb following an air raid.
Ahmed Yousef al-Khatib lost his leg in the same massacre that killed ten of his family members, after regime helicopters dropped an explosive barrel on al-Yadoudah, northwest of Daraa city, on Monday.
Field sources have reported that the explosive barrel attacks on al-Yadoudah killed a dozen people, most of them women and children from the Khatib family, while injuring more than a dozen more from the same family.
Activists posted a video on social networking sites showing neighbors attempting to pull victims from under the rubble of their homes.
