Iraq: MSF supplies Mosul hospitals after violent attacks

On July 15 there were six deadly attacks in the city of Mosul, in northern Iraq: four car bombs and two suicide attacks. MSF continues to provide medical supplies to city hospitals that are receiving large numbers of wounded people. Around 90 blast victims were admitted to one of the hospitals supported by MSF.

As a first response to the blasts, MSF has sent medical supplies from Amman to the Mosul hospitals, including anesthesia supplies, dressings and medication. MSF contacts in Mosul are assessing further needs.

While the dangerous security situation does not allow MSF teams to work directly in Iraq's conflict zones, the organization has established a presence in Amman, Jordan, as well as in the Kurdish provinces in northern Iraq. From there, MSF is supporting hospitals in the war zones of northern and central Iraq with medical materials and staff training.
