The World’s ER

Gaza City—A Palestinian woman mourns at a hospital, still wearing clothes stained with the blood of relatives who medics say were wounded in Israeli shelling as the latest war between Israel and Hamas escalated. On July 25, Secretary of State John Kerry was dispatched to Cairo to “push for an immediate cessation of hostilities,” and President Barack Obama joined the United Nations in calling for a cease-fire.
