The General Secretariat of the al-Abbas's (p) Holy Shrine issued a statement regarding the tragic traffic accident, to which Iraqi visitors of the shrine of Lady Zaynab (peace be upon her) were exposed on the outskirts of the Syrian capital, Damascus.
This came in a press conference held this morning (13 Rajab 1441 AH) corresponding to (9 March 2020) in the conference hall of Al-Kafeel Specialized Hospital.
The statement was delivered by the Acting Head of the Media Department of the al-Abbas's (p) Holy Shrine; Dr. Mushtaq Abbas Maan, who stated:
"The al-Abbas's (p) holy shrine announces that it transported the injured of the traffic accident on the outskirts of the Syrian capital, Damascus, from the Iraqi visitors of the holy shrine of Lady Zaynab (peace be upon her). Their arrival was secured this Monday morning (13 Rajab 1441 AH) corresponding to (9 March 2020).
Their number reached thirty injured from three governorates (Baghdad, Muthanna and Karbala) and their injuries were distributed between minor, moderate and critical.
