KSRelief continues health drive in Comoros

COMOROS:  The volunteer medical team of the King Salman Humanitarian Aid and Relief Center (KSRelief) held pediatric and general surgeries in Moroni, the capital of Comoros, as part of its medical campaign.

On Sunday, 60 patients were screened and 15 operations were conducted, six on children and nine on adults. 

The surgeries covered inguinal and umbilical hernias, hydrocele, retractile testicle, water cysts, appendectomy, and radical inguinal orchiectomy for a 14-year-old boy.

This medical campaign is part of the voluntary work carried out by KSRelief to fulfill the Kingdom’s Vision 2030. 

It is also part of a series of voluntary campaigns funded and implemented by KSRelief in many countries around the world, under the generous guidance of King Salman and Crown Prince Mohammed bin Salman. 

The specialties of the medical team, which will stay on the island for a week, include urology, pediatric surgery and general surgery.

Condemnation of attacks on Saudi Aramco oil plants continue

  • Bahraini King calls Saudi leadership

RIYADH: Condemnations of Saturday’s attack on Saudi Aramco oil installations continued on Monday, as the US pointed out Iran as the likely culprit behind the drone strikes that have dramatically escalated tensions in the region and triggered a record leap in global oil prices.

King Salman and Crown Prince Mohammed bin Salman both received calls from the King Hamad bin Isa Al-Khalifa of Bahrain to condemn the attacks at Saudi oil facilities in Abqaiq and Khurais.

US Secretary of Defense Mark Esper called the crown prince, who is also the defense minister, to affirm his country's full support for the Kingdom.

British Foreign Secretary Dominic Raab said, “We will work with international partners to forge the widest and most effective response,” with a statement from his ministry saying the “UK remains committed to supporting the security of Saudi Arabia.”

India also slammed the attacks and reiterated the country’s “rejection of terrorism in all its forms and manifestations,” a foreign ministry spokesman said.

Official Spokesperson of the UN Secretary General Stephane Dujarric said in a statement that the Secretary General condemns Saturday's attacks on two Aramco oil plants.

The German Foreign Ministry spokeswoman said, “Such an attack on civilian and vital infrastructure in the Kingdom of Saudi Arabia is not justified”.
