Kur­dis­tan sends medicines to Hasaka

The Kurdish Globe - - SPORTS NEWS -

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.
