SUBJECT: TFIZ01: UAEG OFFERS MEDICAL TREATMENT TO
INJURED IRAQIS

REF: ABU DHABI 1662 AND PREVIOUS

1. The Office of the Chairman of the General Health
Authority for the Emirate of Abu Dhabi Hamed bin Zayid
Al-Nahyan publicly announced on April 13 that the UAE
Red Crescent Authority (RCA) has been authorized to
transport wounded Iraqi civilians to the UAE for
medical treatment. The spokesman said that the UAEG
recognizes that Iraqi hospitals are simply overwhelmed
by the number of patients, and the types of trauma
encountered, since the onset of hostilities in Iraq.

2. According to press reports, each state-run
hospital in Abu Dhabi Emirate reserves part of its
facilities to treat foreign patients in extraordinary
circumstances. The medical care would be provided
free of charge, and the RCA would arrange for the
transport of the wounded from Iraq. Comment: The
announcement is not unusual for the UAEG, which also
offered free medical treatment to wounded Palestinians
following the devastation of the Jenin refugee camp
last year. We will seek to coordinate this effort
with the RCA through the Humanitarian Operations
Center (HOC) in Kuwait, and provide further details
when we receive them. End comment.
