Iraqi Regime Prevents Transfer of Camp Liberty Patients to Hospital

Iraqi forces prevented the transfer of six patients from Camp Liberty to the hospital. Two of them are diagnosed with cancer, and one of them had surgery.

The patients had taken their medical appointments from two hospitals in Baghdad long ago and the transfer was coordinated with Iraqi forces. Sunday night, forces of the Prime Ministry said patients were allowed to go to only one hospital and the number of accompanying persons and translators had to be reduced to two. Thus, residents were forced to eliminate two patients.

On the morning of August 4, the Prime Ministry agents returned four remaining patients from the Camp entrance on the pretext of replacing one of the translators. In order not to lose time and get to their medical appointments, the patients decided to go to the hospital without an interpreter, but the elements of the Prime Ministry, once again, on the pretext that ID cards of two of the patients were not original, prevented their transfer to the hospital. As such, all patients lost their medical appointments.

Twenty residents of Ashraf and Liberty suffered from slow death due to the inhumane medical siege over the past 6 years, whereas if the residents had free access to medical care, most of them would have been saved.

The Iranian resistance warns against the above inhuman acts, and given the US government and the UN obligations vis--vis the safety and security of Liberty residents, demands urgent intervention of the US and the UN to provide free access to medical services to Liberty residents.
