Israel will set up a field hospital in Ukraine next week, the Health Ministry says.

The site will be operated by the Sheba Medical Center, Clalit Health Services, and medical staff from additional hospitals, the ministry says.

The hospital will include wards for children and adults, an emergency room, a delivery room, and a primary care clinic.

Health Minister Nitzan Horowitz says Israel will “continue to help as much as necessary to save the lives of citizens whose worlds were destroyed.”

Representatives from the Foreign Ministry will also join the delegation.

The ministry does not immediately say where in the country the hospital will be set up. Channel 12 news says it will be in the western city of Lviv.
