Lattakia, SANA – Representative of the World Health Organization (WHO) Elizabeth Hoff said the organization will work on providing urgent medical assistance to Lattakia province.

She was speaking during a meeting with Governor of Lattakia Ibrahim Khudr al-Salem on Tuesday to address issues related to securing the coastal province’s medical needs.

Hoff requested that the parties concerned in the province prepare schedules citing the numbers and residence places of the terrorism-affected people to be given to the donors who will provide the assistance.
