HEBRON, West Bank, March 4 (Xinhua) -- Raed Al-Mashni, 46, a wheelchair-bound Palestinian bicycle repairman, supports his seven-member family with five kids by repairing bicycles in the al-Shuyoukh village north of the West Bank city of Hebron.

A former construction worker, Al-Mashni learned repairing bicycles after losing his job because he was paralyzed with a broken spine in a falling accident 12 years ago. He now earns about 100 shekels (30 U.S. dollars) each day to make a living.
