27-10-2014

The Czech Republic will send two teams of doctors to Jordan to help treat Syrian refugees, the ctk news agency reports citing the Office of the Government. The mission was approved by the Czech government within the Medevac humanitarian aid programme. The two teams will include heart specialists and orthopaedists. Originally the plan was to have treated some of the injured refugees in the Czech Republic, but this was abandoned in view of the fact that some of them could present a security threat.
