Egyptian medical team sets up field hospital on Syria-Turkey border

An Egyptian medical team of 20 doctors and nurses went to the Syrian-Turkish border on Sunday to establish a field hospital for emergency surgeries for wounded Syrians, said the president of Suez Canal University.

“The team is equipped with all medical supplies to share with the Arab Doctors Union’s rescue committee for a period of three months," said university president Mohamed Mohamedein.

Team coordinator Emad Abdel Gawad said the team includes specialists in general surgery, neurosurgery, anesthesia, intensive care, cardiothoracic surgery, nursing, and radiology.

“We are also participating in the establishment of another field hospital in Aleppo,” he said.
