The sources pointed out that the aforementioned area is inhabited by a significant number of expatriate workers, as well as citizens of the owners of cabins and rest houses who come to the area periodically, especially during official holidays and the weekend, explaining that this requires providing the best medical services in the health center, whether it is to be established or currently in place.
