Palestinian Samir Abu Tahoun, 57, undergoes kidney dialysis at al-Shifa hospital in Gaza City September 12, 2013. Hooked up to a dialysis machine, Abu Tahoun can only sit and wait for the gates to a new life to open. For Abu Tahoun seeking a kidney transplant in Cairo, that means the border crossing from the Gaza Strip to Egypt, whose army-backed government has sharply limited entry from the Islamist Hamas-run territory since the military deposed Islamist president Mohamed Mursi two months ago.
