Tree that bleeds

Sheikh Nasr al-Deen drips what he calls blood from a tree over a girl in Dishna. The Sheikh claims that the tree only bleeds Fridays and Mondays. On Fridays many people gather around the tree with syringes and napkins and try to suck liquid out of any cracks. The sheikh says that the reddish liquid can cure many maladies.
