BEIRUT: The Lebanese Order of Physicians in Tripoli condemned over the weekend an attack on a doctor in a north Lebanon clinic, saying the organization would file a lawsuit against the assailants.
In a statement, the order said it “deplores the attack on the doctor who was beaten up by two men and a patient ... when he was getting ready to treat the patient.”
The head of the order, Eli Habib, said it would file a lawsuit against the perpetrators, regardless of who they were or who protected them.
“We are fed up of asking security agencies to protect us, and we will take escalatory and peaceful measures such as refraining from receiving patients to prevent the recurrence of such incidents,” Habib added.
Unidentified assailants beat up a doctor Friday and ransacked a nonprofit clinic owned by Kataeb General-Secretary Michel Khoury in the north Lebanon town of Shekka.
The attackers then fled in a Peugeot with tinted windows, a security source said.
