The Amal Movement Sunday condemned an assault on a doctor at Tibnin Governmental Hospital in the southern district of Bint Jbeil, expressing serious concern for the safety of medical personnel due to repeated attacks across Lebanon.Further details of the motive behind the attack were not immediately clear, with the Amal statement simply noting the doctor had been attacked on hospital grounds.Staff at Tibnin Governmental Hospital could not be reached for comment, nor could a spokesperson for the Internal Security Forces.There have been several attacks on doctors across the country, usually perpetrated by patients and members of their families.Doctors in July last year staged a protest outside Beirut's Hotel Dieu Hospital after an emergency room doctor was assaulted by a patient and his son, resulting in serious injuries to the doctor.
