Italy has started transferring Libyan injured fighters of the Operation Dignity forces led by Khalifa Haftar to Italian hospitals.

The injured fighters have taken off from Benina airport in Benghazi and will be receiving treatment in Italian hospitals.

The Italian Embassy in Tripoli said on its website that this step is part of the support and solidarity Italy will give to Libyans all across the country, saying the support won’t end here.

Separately, a delegation of doctors and medical staffers and technicians from Italy arrived in Mitiga airport on Tuesday to pay a visit to Mitiga hospital in Tripoli to do the necessary assessment at the hospital.

The delegation, which was received by the Sooq Al-Joma mayor and other officials at the hospital, assessed the medical services and the needed equipment and medicines at hospital for better performance.

The Italian delegation also offered to cooperate with the hospital’s management to help support the hospital by the Rome Military hospital for better medical services to the Libyan patients.

The visit is part of a series of visits done by the delegation of the Italian Rome Military Hospital, which visited Mitiga hospital twice before.
