PALESTINIANS-GAZA MEDICS

KHUZAA, Gaza Strip — Each Friday, Gaza medic Asmaa Qudih goes through a tense ritual: She performs a prayer, kisses her mother's hand and packs a bag with medical supplies as she heads off to work at the weekly mass protests along the Israeli border. Treating the wounded has become a dangerous mission for Gaza's emergency workers. Three have been killed by Israeli gunfire, while dozens more, including Qudih, have been wounded.
