NABLUS — On Tuesday, Al-Mamlaka TV reported on the patients of successful procedures operated by the Jordan Field Hospital in Nablus in light of the severe aggression faced by Palestinians.

Given the shortage of medicines and medical supplies in Palestinian territories, the hospital serves as a health and treatment refuge for those in need, including the impoverished and low-income workers. This comes after Israel expelled thousands of workers and prevented them from working within the occupied territories, specifically since October 7.

Patient Alaa Sa’id praised the efforts of doctors and nurses within the hospital, emphasizing that the quality of treatment provided by the hospital and its doctors are excellent compared to other hospitals in the city.

Ahmad Maher Abu Hashish, who regularly visits the hospital, stated that the hospital’s presence is a clear indication of Jordan’s support, solidarity, and empathy with the Palestinian people.

On another note, patient Sara Abdel Qader shared that she underwent a successful nerve transplant surgery at the hospital a few days ago. She expressed gratitude to the doctors who performed the procedure.

The hospital consists of 7 trailers, including an operating room, medical care unit, laboratory, radiology department, pharmacy, dental clinic and admission sections. Additionally, there are 12 tents for patient reception, emergency services, minor surgical procedures, clinics and patient waiting areas. The hospital also has an administrative section and a pharmacy.

The Director of the hospital, Dr. Fadi Maaytah, affirmed that by Jordanian Royal decree the hospital was sent to Nablus to support Palestinians, provide them with health care, and meet their medical needs. The hospital began its operations on Nov. 23.

Regarding available medical specialties, Dr. Maaytah mentioned that they include neurosurgery, chest medicine, general surgery, urology, pediatric surgery, pediatric internal medicine, hematology, orthopedic surgery, maxillofacial surgery, thoracic surgery, general internal medicine, emergency medicine and trauma surgery.

The administrative assistant of the hospital, Ahmad Zuhair Al-Drabseh, affirmed that the hospital has been equipped with all necessary medical supplies, medications, and human resources due to efforts made by the Jordanian Armed Forces – the Arab Army (JAF).

Ghassan Daghlas, Governor of Nablus, praised the continuous Jordanian support for the Palestinian cause across all domains. He emphasized that the establishment of a Jordanian hospital in Nablus is not surprising, given that they have witnessed the generosity of the Hashemite family throughout history, whether on the political, economic and social fronts.

It is worth noting that Jordan operates five field hospitals in Palestinian territories: three in the West Bank, Nablus, Ramallah, and Jenin, and two in Gaza, Khan Yunis and Tal al-Hawa. These hospitals provide free treatment and medication to hundreds of thousands of Palestinians.
