Tunis, 4 June 2017:
Abdullah Al-Thinni, the House of Representatives’ Beida-based prime minister, has inaugurated work on a new hospital in Musaid, near the border with Egypt. It is to serve the border area. He unveiled a plaque marking the start of work on a new section of highway to the new project.
The ceremony, in which the administration’s health minister Reida El-Oakley also took part, came during a two-day visit to the town by Thinni which finished yesterday.
El-Oakley told the Libya Herald that the new hospital will provide primary health care, obstetrics, trauma and emergency medical care.
Issues affecting Musaid and the wider area were discussed with local representatives, officials and activists. There was also a session involving Thinni and Musaid’s mayor and municipal councillors.
Apart from El-Oakley, who inspected the existing hospital medical supplies to ensure that nine were out of date or fake, Thinni was also accompanied by his acting interior minister, Brigadier Hussein Elabbar.
