Al Kafeel Super Speciality Hospital provided free medical and treatment services to more than 800 patients, including 86 critical cases of peaceful protesters, including those transferred by ambulances to the hospital or those received in the open medical detachment in the assembly square, central Karbala.
This is part of the efforts of the al-Abbas’s (p) holy shrine in supporting peaceful protesters, who are claiming their legitimate rights guaranteed by the Iraqi constitution and approved by the supreme religious authority, and being part of the humanitarian duty of the hospital staff.
The hospital administration said its medical detachments in the demonstration square in the center of the city of Karbala have provided medical care and first aid to more than 800 protesters since the protests began.
The majority of those who were received were hit by tear gas, some of them with light and moderate injuries, and some of them were shot.
A total of 86 emergency cases were received, including six members of the security services, who were not treated in the medical detachment, but sent to be treated in the hospital.
All the injured were discharged from hospital after receiving treatment and their health was stable, except for only two demonstrators, one still in intensive care and another undergoing surgery.
