Misrata, 6 June 2016:
The deputy chairman of the medical crisis committee in Misrata has resigned accusing the government . . .[restrict]and the municipal council of failing to meet the needs of the central hospital and clinics in the city at a time when demand had increased massively because of the military operation against the so-called Islamic State (IS).
Abdulaziz Issa will, however, remain as Misratra Central Hospital’s media manager.
Hospital officials earlier pointed out that while it had received some supplies far more was needed, especially anaesthetics and pain killers. What had been received, moreover, had not been provided by the Government of National Accord in Tripoli or Misrata municipal council. It had been provided by organisations or private individuals or from abroad.
Last week Qatar sent a planeload of medical supplies to Misrata. Yesterday, small delivery of antibiotics, intravenous fluids and other medical aid arrived, gifted by people in Suq Al-Khamis.
Over 100 soldiers taking part in the Bunyan Marsous operation against IS have been killed since it started and 500 wounded. Although several of the latter are not from Misrata, they are taken to Misrata Central Hospital, at least for initial treatment. [/restrict]
