Derna Local Council has opened the outpatient department at Al-Wahda Hospital after completing maintenance work. 

Council Chairman, Awad Al-Airaj, said that the Council completed the maintenance work by relying on local workers after the building was damaged by an unknown aerial bombardment of the city.

Al-Airaj also stated that the doctors and specialists that run the hospital are all from Derna, adding that the maintenance work in Al-Wahda Hospital was stalled for years because of the shortage of materials due to the siege of the city.

He explained that the Council seeks to lift the siege imposed on the city, wishing that 2018 be a good start to the city and the country in general.
