[From the Office of Syrian Refugee Affairs in Lebanon, July 14, 2013]
A number of wounded Syrians being treated at Miniyeh Hospital in northern Lebanon were kicked to the curb on Sunday following a dispute between the hospital’s partners, Dr. Amer Ulm Al-Deen and Marwan Al-Kalal. It’s still not clear what caused the argument, but it was wounded Syrians that paid the price.
The wounded refugees were kicked out of the hospital by force, thrown on the side of the adjacent roads, despite the presence of seriously wounded and paralyzed individuals. The Office of Syrian Refugee Affairs in Lebanon holds the hospital staff responsible. All medicine and medical equipment used to treat the Syrian refugees were kept at the hospital, despite attempts by local elders to retrieve the items. The Office for Syrian Refugee Affairs in Lebanon also made it clear that they had covered all hospital costs for the Syrian refugees, providing medicine and equipment for the hospital staff.
