Kurdistan sends medicines to Hasaka
Head of Peshkhabour border crossing, Shawkat Barbahary, said that Kurdistan Region President asked related authorities in the Region to provide health assistances to people in Hasaka.
"We have sent three tons of blood and medications to Hasaka," said Barbahary.
These assistances came after a bomb explosion hit the Salihiya neighborhood in the city of Hasaka, northeast Syria last week where people were gathered to celebrate Nawroz. The explosion at the same time targeted the family of Abdulhakim Bashar, Secretary of the Kurd- ish Democratic Party in Syria (KDPS) who live nearby. The terrorist act caused a lot of damage: 50 people were killed and another 150 were injured. The IS took responsibility for the attack.
The area is since months under the control of the Kurdish forces of the Popular Protection Units (YPG) −armed wing of the Democratic Union Party (PYD).
Barbahary stated that Kurdistan Region's doors are open for the injured people in order to enter the region for medical treatments.
