The wounded from Libya are treated in the departments of ophthalmology and trauma in three hospitals of Minsk - the 3rd, 6th and 10th. Five to ten Libyans, who suffered during the war at home, are currently in each of the three hospitals. This was reported by a doctor from Libya in the department of ophthalmology of the 3rd Clinical Hospital of Minsk.
"A lot of wounded are now in Libya; hospitals are overcrowded, so other countries, including Belarus, have come to help. Most of the injured are men of middle age. There are a few women, too. Major injuries comprise retinal detachment of eyes and stab wounds of the extremities," explained the Libyan doctor.
Several dozens of injured Libyans bandages on their eyes are living now in the hotel "Europe," reported "Komsomolskaya Pravda in Belarus." According to the representative of the hotel, their accommodation is paid by the Embassy of Libya.
Belarusian Ministry of Health has not yet made any official comments on this program of medical aid to Libyans in Belarus. The Embassy of Libya has not commented on this topic, as well.
As Telegraf previously reported, one of the representatives of the Embassy of Libya in Belarus noted in late October 2011 that Belarus had supported the people of Libya by treating the wounded rebels.
The leader of the Libyan Revolution, Muammar al-Gaddafi, was killed on October 20. According to the leadership of the rebels, he died from his injuries.
