ERBIL, Kurdistan Region - The Flemish government in Belgium has agreed to provide care for 10 Peshmerga fighters who were injured in the war against ISIS, a Kurdish official told Rudaw on Thursday.
 
Dlawar Azhgayi, Kurdistan Region’s representative to Europe, said that the Flemish government had sent a delegation visiting all Kurdish provinces in order to choose the injured Peshmerga who need the medical treatment outside the country.
 
“So far two Peshmerga have been sent to Belgium, and a successful operation has been conducted for one of them,” Azhgayi said.
 
He added the Belgian physicians have successfully conducted a hip joint replacement surgery for one of the injured Peshmerga.
 
A surgery for the second Peshmerga is going to happen in the near future, the official said.
 
The Kurdish government will take care of the travel expenses for the injured Peshmerga and they are to receive free treatment by the Flemish government.
 
Azhgayi said the Luxembourg government has also shown its willingness to receive some injured Peshmerga.
 
According to the Ministry of Peshmerga’s figures, as of early February 1,700 Peshmerga had been killed in the fight against ISIS and nearly 10,000 had been injured.
 
The Kurdistan Region has been struggling to cope with the large number of casualties, seeking treatment for some of them outside the country as the Kurdish hospitals in some cases lack expertise or medical equipment to treat them at home.
 
The government has sent some of the injured to countries like India, Turkey, Jordan, Germany and the United Arab Emirates.
