The Crisis and Emergency Committee of the Ministry of Health has condemned in its strongest terms the targeting of a medical team on Friday in the Abu Qurain area near Sirte.

The attack resulted in the injury of several paramedics and destroyed an ambulance, according to the committee, describing it as "an immoral attack".

The head of the Crisis and Emergency Committee at the Ministry of Health, Fawzi Onis, stressed that such offensives, which violate all domestic and international laws will be added to the record of attacks on the health sector and its workers since the start of the aggression against Tripoli.

"These actions put medical staff and paramedics at risk and adds to the suffering of the sick and the injured," Onis explained.
