Ahmed Zoarob, a Palestinian agronomist turned healer, holds a bee hive outside his clinic on January 24, 2013 in the southern Gaza Strip city of Rafah. Zoarob uses the bees to sting those who have come to him for help -- and amid the territory's deepening isolation, his clinic has been transformed into a hive of activity. Most claims of apitherapy -- the medical use of bee venom -- are anecdotal and have not been proved to the satisfaction of scientists, although believers say it helps relieve pain from multiple sclerosis and rheumatoid arthritis and certain other ailments.
