The government of Germany will provide the budget for a 200-bed hospital for the Kurdistan Region’s Ministry of Peshmerga, a Kurdish military official said. The Deputy Chief of Staff in the Peshmerga Ministry, Qaraman Kamal, told NRT on Tuesday (May 23) several companies have put together plans for the Peshmerga forces’ military hospital. “A number of companies have prepared designs for the hospital”, Kamal added. “The best design will be chosen today”. Germany’s government will provide the budget for the hospital, which amounts to more than 5 million Euros (more than $5.624 million), according to the Peshmerga official. The hospital will be built in Erbil from the “best” design selected, the official noted. Kamal said the Ministry of Peshmerga will no longer have issues regarding wounded Peshmerga members after the hospital is built. There will be no need to send members of Peshmerga forces abroad for treatment. “We can bring medical experts from abroad to treat wounded Peshmerga if necessary”, he added, stating this would take less of the budget from the Peshmerga Ministry. Germany has been supporting and assisting the Peshmerga forces with weapons and military equipment in the fight against the Islamic State (ISIS). According to a defense ministry spokesman, Germany has delivered 70 tons of weapons, including 1,500 rifles, 100 shoulder-fired rockets and three armored vehicles, to the KRG.
