Egyptian state media says 126 Palestinians who were wounded in recent fighting between IDF troops and Palestinian gunmen in the Gaza Strip were flown to Turkey for treatment. The Middle East News Agency said the Palestinians were flown by a chartered Turkish plane after spending weeks in Egyptian hospitals. Tuesday's flight included some patients who have had their legs or arms amputated and expect to receive treatment in Turkey. Egypt opened its only crossing with Gaza last month to receive scores of wounded Palestinians after Israel's Operation Hot Winter against terrorists firing rockets from the territory.
