Fellow fighters rush out in clear view of a sniper to drag Yusef Matoog Alhamaly to safety after he was shot in the thigh during a battle in the streets of Sirte. Every day on the Sirte frontline, young fighters risk their own lives to evacuate the injured. Ambulance divers face incoming fire as they rush in to treat the wounded. Doctors and nurses work tirelessly with no pay and little sleep, saving lives with minimal resources. The problem of finding safe transport for the critically injured has become even greater in Sirte with a frontline 250km from the nearest hospital.						 (image by Tracey Shelton)
