AMMAN (JT) — Jordan's army-run mobile hospital treated more than 14,100 people and carried out 43 surgeries since it began operating in late July.

Hospital Director Colonel Farhan Kasasbeh said before the ceasefire, the hospital received 700-800 patients per day, but after the cessation of war the number dropped to 500. Kasasbeh said the location of the field hospital was chosen in coordination with the Lebanese authorities to be close to schools and public gardens where many of the displaced took shelter.

He added that it was impossible to erect the field hospital in southern Lebanon as the main roads leading to the south were under attacks by the Israelis, also noting that the Jordanian field hospital was the first in Lebanon.

The hospital director explained that some 200 patients suffered from nightmares, insomnia and depression and received treatment by psychiatrists on the premises.

The medical team currently at the field hospital is due to return to Amman on Thursday and will be replaced by new personnel.
