(Persia Digest) – The PR offices of Iran’s Red Crescent Society has issued a statement on the hostile behavior of the UAE towards the activities of the Iranian hospital in Dubai.

The statement reads: “Dubai health authorities have called on all insurance companies to stop providing services to the hospital in an official letter.

The Iranian hospital in Dubai is one of the oldest in the UAE which began work in 1972 with a permit from the ruler of the time. But it has faced many obstacles in recent years with the malicious behavior of the UAE towards Iran.
