About 3,000 Israeli nurses walked off the job to protest a government health plan they say will increase the burden on already understaffed hospitals. Physicians who have been staging short strikes for several months closed out-patient clinics and performed only emergency surgery. Like the nurses, the doctors oppose the government's health proposal, which calls for shortening the waiting list for operations by introducing a second daily surgery shift.

For two decades, Makassed Hospital atop the Mount of Olives in East Jerusalem has been the chief medical center for 1.7 million Palestinians in the occupied territories, almost their only succor when seriously ill or injured. But now, because of a shut-off of funds from Kuwait, the 250-bed charity hospital is facing financial disaster, and the staff is worried.

A suicide bomber drove a car rigged with explosives toward scores of Israeli troops in south Lebanon today but it exploded just before reaching them, security sources said. They said the driver planned to smash the Renault car packed with 220 pounds of explosives into an Israeli convoy near Khardali Bridge, 6 miles south of Marjayoun in Israel's self-declared "security zone." It was not immediately known what triggered the explosion, which killed only the driver, the sources said.

In a bid to boost sales of its generic drugs to U.S. hospitals, Israel's Teva Pharmaceutical Industries Ltd. said Friday that it would buy Irvine-based pharmaceuticals maker Sicor Inc. for $3.4 billion.

RAMALLAH, West Bank - The presence of three words on a letterhead - "State of Palestine" - is keeping Palestinian patients from being transferred from the Gaza Strip to hospitals in East Jerusalem or Israel, officials on both sides acknowledged Wednesday. Israel informed theĀ  Palestinian Authority on Tuesday that it would no longer accept the patients if the transfer letter issued by the Palestinian Ministry of Health contains those words. Palestinian authorities expressed surprise, saying the phrase had been used on official documents since late 2012, when the United Nations upgraded the Palestinian Authority's status to that of a nonmember observer "state" rather than "entity.

Two L.A. Coliseum commissioners Thursday urged their board to reconsider the surprise decision to lift a moratorium on raves that had been in place since the drug overdose death of a 15-year-old girl in June after she attended a massive festival at the stadium. Commissioners Rick Caruso, a shopping center magnate who owns the Grove, and Los Angeles County Supervisor Zev Yaroslavsky said there was no advance notice that the moratorium might be lifted at the Wednesday meeting, from which both were absent.

A suicide car bomb exploded today near Israel's "Good Fence" border crossing in south Lebanon, killing seven Israeli soldiers and wounding nine others and two Lebanese civilians, Israeli officials said. In Beirut, the Islamic Resistance claimed responsibility for the explosion. The same coalition of pro-Iranian fundamentalist groups claimed responsibility for a car bomb that wounded three Israelis in August. The explosion was an even more devastating attack on Israeli soldiers than one last Nov.

Surrounded by tissue paper, feathers and glitter, the students in Andrea DeSharone's classroom could look like a kindergarten art class. But they are working on their PhDs. For future art, music and dance therapists, learning to express their feelings through art--creating an object or image out of these craft supplies--is the key to what they someday hope to practice.

For young Israelis wedged between war and adulthood, it's a chance to escape the struggle of their homeland -- and to be unapologetically young for the first and last time. Once mandatory army service is behind them, they flock overseas for a year, maybe two. Many head for Bolivia, Peru or Thailand. A few venture to Australia or New Zealand. But mostly, former soldiers go to India.
