The people of al-Bukamal in the most eastern part of Deir Ezzor province suffer from poor health services due to the hegemony of Iranian militias and the negligence of Assad regime, which has offered the city as a gift to Iranian militias.

In the shadow of the global Corona pandemic, al-Bukamal is still without quarantine centers, medicines and sterilants. Moreover, the majority of the city’s hospitals are out of service. Having field hospitals special for their members, the militias don’t care about the residents of al-Bukamal.

According to Deir Ezzor 24 network correspondent, there is only one dispensary to provide medical services to the people of Al-Bukamal, but this dispensary lacks medicines and equipment as the Health Directorate of Assad regime ignores it. The medical staff working in it are unable to deal with the waves of diseases, such as Leishmaniasis that spreads in Al-Bukamal and its countryside.

Because of this bitter medical reality, the people of al-Bukamal find themselves forced to travel more than 170 km to receive treatment in Deir Ezzor city, as their city is forgotten by the Assad regime and its officials.
