Shurrab, 24, who graduated from Middlebury College in December and lives in Washington, D.C., is a Palestinian with relatives in Gaza. He said two of his brothers were killed and his father was wounded there Friday by Israeli forces. Israel declared a cease-fire in Gaza Sunday.

One of his brothers might have been saved, he said, had Israeli troops allowed him to seek medical attention, rather than forcing him to remain at the family's vehicle until he bled to death.
