"In a blog post published on Monday, Dr. Tarek Loubani described how he was shot in the leg while he was attending wounded Palestinians in Gaza. The London, Ont.-based physician said he was shot towards the end of the morning on Monday while he was standing with a group of other medical professionals away from the main protest area, but in view of three Israeli sniper outposts. Dr. Loubani said that he was wearing “full hospital greens” as he stood talking with a colleague. ... Dr. Loubani made headlines in 2013 when he and another Canadian were arrested and held for several months in Egypt during the violent uprising against former Egyptian president Mohammed Morsi. At the time, Dr. Loubani said they were only passing through Egypt on their way to Gaza, where he has embarked on numerous humanitarian missions."
