Wounded Gazans are receiving care in Italy, but their future in the country is uncertain

Shimaa, 10, a Palestinian girl who was evacuated from Gaza amid the ongoing conflict between Israel and the Palestinian Islamist group Hamas cries with her aunt in an ambulance on their way to the airport, as wounded Palestinians are transported to Rome by military aircraft from Cairo International Airport, at the Italian hospital Umberto I of Cairo, Egypt February 9, 2024.
