The United Nations says that it’s releasing $9 million to address immediate needs in Lebanon’s Beirut and help strengthen operations in the city’s hospitals after an explosion.
The WHO reported that the blast left three hospitals unusable and two others with substantial damage, UN deputy spokesman Farhan Haq said.
He said that the UN is carrying out assessments of the damage and needs resulting from the massive explosion.
“We’re trying to get the relevant figures ready as soon as we can,” added.
At least 137 people were killed and 5,000 wounded in a massive explosion in Beirut.
