The Minister for Health, Omar Tahir, condemned the attack on the Sabha Medical Center as a result of the clashes taking place in the city, according to a statement issued by the ministry yesterday evening.

Tahir called on influential elders in Sabha to intervene in order to spare public institutions and their employees from acts of violence.

He described attacks on public health facilities that provide services to all the wounded as a criminal act.

Sabha Medical Center was exposed on Monday to the fall of a number of mortar shells, without causing human casualties.
