Partial sit-in in certain hospitals in Libya over pay rise
The medical staff at Al-Istiklal Hospital, Tripoli Central Hospital, and the University Hospital have entered into a partial strike for an entire week in response to the call by the General Syndicate of Libyan Doctors.
Sources from Misrata also reported that the medical staff of the Misrata Medical Center held a sit-in on Sunday in certain departments, beginning from 9am until midday; however, they provided ongoing treatment for the maternity unit and emergency patients.
Gharyan Teaching Hospital also began a partial sit-in, again with the exception of certain departments, according to the hospital’s media office, whilst most other hospitals in the country continued providing normal coverage until now.
