An Egyptian medically equipped C-130 military transport plane has transported the injured in the explosion of a fuel truck in Libya to receive treatment in the Egyptian Armed Forces hospitals in Cairo.
The accident left dozens of people injured with various burns, and they were transferred to receive treatment at the Armed Forces Hospital in Helmiya for orthopedics and complementarity.
This came in implementation of the directives of President Abdel Fattah Al-Sisi and within the framework of Egypt’s solidarity with the brotherly people of Libya.
Meanwhile, the Medical Services Department raised the state of readiness of the Armed Forces Hospital in Helmiya, and provided the medical staff with the necessary tools and medical supplies on board the plane. The injured were transferred from East Cairo Air Base through a number of medically equipped ambulances.
The spokesman for the Egyptian armed forces said that the medical evacuation of the injured comes as an affirmation of the pivotal Egyptian role, and support for the efforts of the Libyan state to overcome all the crises it faces. The General Command of the Armed Forces extended its sincere wishes to the injured for a speedy recovery.
