KESSAB, Syria—Syria’s Health Minister Dr. Saad al-Nayef told reporters on Thursday that Kessab’s main healthcare center will reopen and resume operation soon, after repairs are finished, SANA news agency reported.
After a visit he paid to Kessab, accompanied by the World Health Organization (WHO) Resident Representative in Damascus Elizabeth Hoff, the minister told journalists that new medical equipment for re-operating the center have arrived from Damascus.
Lattakia governor Ahmad Sheikh Abdul-Kader, for his part, said the services in Kassab are now in good condition and “life is gradually returning to the city.”
The Armenian-populated town of Kessab was attacked by extremist rebels backed by Turkey in March. The Syrian forces took back the city earlier this month.
