Syria ready to receive cancer patients from areas outside gov. control
The Syrian Ministry of Health assures its commitment to providing the necessary medical treatment to Syrian patients wherever they are.
The Syrian Ministry of Health stated that it closely monitors the health conditions of the residents in northern Syria, with a special focus on children, women, and the elderly. The Ministry is committed to providing necessary medical treatment to Syrian patients wherever they are, by facilitating their access to the nearest state-run healthcare facilities, especially for those dealing with cancer and chronic illnesses throughout Syria.
This announcement comes amid discussions about 4,200 cancer patients in Idlib who are unable to receive treatment as Turkey is preventing them from accessing its hospitals. Moreover, armed groups are closing the crossings between Idlib and government-controlled areas, hindering their transfer to state-affiliated medical centers.
It is worth noting that Damascus expressed its willingness to send aid to the country's north, which is held by various armed groups and terrorist organizations after the devastating earthquake which hit the country in February. It is worth noting that the North is largely under the control of the terrorist HTS group.
