The new father was angry that the male doctor touched his wife. He allegedly complained that there should have been a female doctor on duty.

The father later asked to meet the doctor outside of the hospital, and explained that he wanted to thank him and show his appreciation in person for his assistance in the delivery.

When Dr. Muhannad Al Zabn came outside, the father pulled a gun and shot the doctor, seriously wounding him.

The father ran from the scene, but he was later arrested by the police. Dr. Al Zabn was transferred to the intensive care unit of the hospital.

Doctors managed to save Al Zabn’s life, and he is now in stable condition.
