Saudi field hospital concludes its mission in Baghdad

The Ministry of Defense and Aviation announced today that the Saudi field hospital currently operating in Baghdad will soon return to the Kingdom, having completed its mission. The Iraqi Ministry of Health has made this request in view of the fact that it is now able to operate its own hospitals. Iraqi Minister of Health Dr. Khudair Abbas had earlier issued a statement praising the medical services provided by the Saudi government to the Iraqi people.
