    Morocco’s Field Hospital in Gaza is Ready to Care for Wounded Palestinians

    13 Jun 2018

    The Moroccan Royal Armed Forces (FAR) field hospital, recently deployed in Gaza, has opened its doors to receive Gazan patients.

    On Friday, June 8, King Mohammed VI’s humanitarian aid transport arrived in the Gaza strip, loaded with 113 tons of aid, including 25 tons of medicine and 5,000 blankets.

    FAR’s 97 medical staff, including 14 doctors and 21 nurses, also arrived to prepare themselves to assist injured Palestinians who suffered the May 14 massacre and other Palestinians suffering from illnesses.

    Soldiers of the Royal Armed Forces began to set up the hospital from Sunday, June 10, until Monday, enabling it to launch medical services and operate with all of its equipment.

    The hospital is equipped to handle emergencies, pediatrics, traumatology, ENT, ophthalmology, cardiology, and provide vascular and abdominal surgeries among other medical needs.

    The medical officer in charge of the field hospital, Ahmed Bounaim, informed the press that the hospital also has radiology equipment and a laboratory for medical analysis, which will mitigate the medical equipment shortage in the region.

    “Our objective is to guarantee the success of this humanitarian mission in every way possible, in accordance with the high royal instructions,” Bounaim said in a statement.

    Before arriving in Gaza, the aid stopped in Cairo’s West Air Base Airport where Morocco’s Ambassador to Egypt Ahmad Tazi supervised its transferring from the military airplanes to trucks that shipped it to its destination.

    King Mohammed VI personally supervised the aid transport leaving the Casablanca airport on May 29.
