Doctors Without Borders: Treating resistant infections in Gaza

Many patients in Gaza with shattered bones from Israeli sniper fire find that they must beat serious, resistant infections before they can undergo surgery. This is tricky under the best of circumstances, but where medical supplies and facilities are in desperately short supply, it is extremely challenging. Over 1,000 Gazans currently suffer from severe bone infections.

Palestinians in Gaza are dealing with more fallout from the blockade – and their protest against it.

One Israeli human rights org reports over 180 Palestinians killed (31 of them minors) and 21,000 injured.
