Medici Senza Frontiere è pronto a intensificare i suoi sforzi nei pressi della città irachena di Mosul: lo ha detto Jehan Bseiso, capo dell'ufficio comunicazione di MSF. “Nel governatorato di Salaheddin, dove Msf gestisce una clinica mobile e una unità di stabilizzazione ad Hajjaj non troppo lontano dalla prima linea, i team sono pronti ad aumentare le attività in previsione di grandi movimenti di popolazione dal nord del governatorato e da Ninive. Stesso discorso per quanto riguarda il governatorato di Kirkuk” ha precisato Bseiso a Sputnik. Msf si prepara ad accrescere il numero di personale medico nella zona e a consegnare forniture mediche supplementari.

The Medecins Sans Frontieres (Doctors Without Borders, or MSF) international humanitarian group is ready to step up its efforts near the Iraqi city of Mosul, where a major military operation is about to begin, Jehan Bseiso, head of MSF communications office, said. "In Salaheddin governorate, where MSF runs a mobile clinic and a stabilization unit in Hajjaj not too far from the frontline; teams stand ready to scale up activities in anticipation of large population movements from northern Salaheddin and Ninewa. MSF teams are also ready to scale up activities in Kirkuk governorate," Bseiso told Sputnik on Tuesday. She added that even those who would flee Mosul and reach zones of relative safety, would suffer from psychological trauma and lack adequate medical care. According to Bseiso, MSF is preparing to increase the medical personnel numbers in the area and deliver additional medical supplies. On Monday, Iraqi Prime Minister Haider Abadi announced the beginning of an operation to retake Mosul, the second largest Iraqi city, which was captured by the Islamic State militants in 2014.
