A Palestinian specialist performs Hajima, also knows as "wet cupping therapy", on a patient at his home, in Gaza city on October 16, 2019. Hijama is considered a traditional medical treatment in Islamic countries where blood is drawn by vacuum from a small skin incision for therapeutic purposes. Cupping therapy has been found in ancient records dating back 3500 years and is still used in Asian and Islamic countries like China, Pakistan, Iran and the Arab world. Photo by Mahmoud Ajjour
