While testifying Obaidat said that employees at the Health Ministry are not directly responsible for the supply of oxygen or any deficits that may occur at hospitals.

He added that common practice holds the head of a governorate’s health directorate responsible for these matters, noting that the minister is not required to intervene to such a degree.
