Saudi Arabia

A Palestinian girl who lost her legs and a boy who was blinded in Israel's attack on Gaza are amongst Palestinians receiving treatment in Saudi Arabia, a Saudi minister said on Jan. 13. Saudi state media have carried prominent coverage of several dozen wounded Palestinians brought to the country for treatment in Saudi hospitals. A precise figure of those being treated was not available. A meeting of Arab health ministers in Riyadh will discuss Israel's offensive in Gaza that has killed more than 900 Palestinians and put Arab leaders under public pressure to act. (Reuters)
