Life and work at the Gaza border--A doctor's tale

Wednesday, January 07, 2009

Dr. Ron Lobel is the medical director of a hospital about 17 kilometers from the Gaza border. His hospital treated both Israelis and Palestinians alike, until the borders closed. Now, he joins John and Adaora from Ashkelon, Israel where he puts a human face on the story of two embattled rivals and his patients who can't return home.

"We consider our Palestinians across the border not as enemies. We consider them as neighbors."
— Dr. Ron Lobel of Barzilai Hospital in Ashkelon, Israel just across the border from Gaza
