On Thursday, Sidon MP Bahia Hariri informed Qaddoura of a decision by Abu Faour to provide the hospital with the LL1.2 billion ($795,756) to pay a portion of the owed salaries.However, the announcement failed to convince the staff to end their strike, which was launched Monday. Qaddoura, on the other hand, accused the protesting staff of being motivated by "some doctors and employees" who were loyal to the hospital's old administration, which was replaced on March 21 by a Health Ministry decree.
