AMMAN — The Jordanian military field hospital arrived in Lebanon on Thursday, the Jordan News Agency, Petra, reported.


The move came after His Majesty King Abdullah issued directives to the concerned authorities to support the Lebanese people after a massive explosion hit Beirut on Tuesday, claiming scores of lives and injuring thousands, Petra said.

The field hospital is fully equipped for conducting surgeries, including 48 beds, 10 ICU beds and two operating rooms, Petra reported.

Also on Thursday, the Lebanese embassy in the Kingdom expressed gratitude to Jordan’s supportive stance.

Highlighting the deep-rooted Jordanian-Lebanese ties,  Lebanese Ambassador to Jordan Tracy Chamoun, in a statement, voiced deep appreciation for the Jordanian assistance offered to her country amid the difficult times.
