NCRI – Upon the order of the Iraqi committee tasked with suppression of residents of Camp Ashraf, Iraqi forces on Monday prevented the transfer of eight critically ill residents who are in urgent need of surgery and medical treatment to be transferred to the hospital in city of Baqoba.

Iraqi physicians had prescribed the transfer of the patients to the Baquba and Baghdad hospitals for medical treatments, examinations and surgical operations. Four of the patients are in critical condition and any delay in their treatment would endanger their lives.

 

Since three month ago, Iraqi forces have limited the transfer ill residents to one patient a week. Aslo, since November 1, 201, the Iraqi forces have canceled the medical appointments for 51 patients.
 
The limitations are enforced as more than 100 residents are suffering fromr kidney, heart, internal, nerve, eye, thyroids, ear, throat and orthopedic diseases and a number of them are in critical condition
The patients have been waiting for few months to receive the prearranged medical treatments in Baquba and Baghdad hospitals, but Iraqi forces have prevented them from receiving the medical services.

Due to the medical siege imposed on Camp Ashraf, during the past year 12 wounded and ill residents have lost their lives.
