JEDDAH: An Indian man evacuated from Sudan received medical treatment at King Faisal Naval Base in Jeddah on Wednesday.
The Saudi Health Ministry’s medical team transported the man to King Fahd General Hospital for further check-ups after he received medical assistance in the presence of Indian Ambassador to the Kingdom Suhel Ajaz Khan, who is in Jeddah receiving evacuees.
India has launched Operation Kaveri to rescue its nationals from war-torn Sudan and has set up a transit facility in Jeddah.
As the Saudi government continued efforts to move its citizens, as well as foreign nationals, to safety, a Saudi navy ship carrying another group of evacuees from Sudan arrived in Jeddah early on Wednesday.
The ship transported 1,687 people from 58 nationalities from Port Sudan on the Red Sea.
