The head of the IDF’s humanitarian mission in Nepal on Wednesday met with Nepalese Prime Minister Sushil Koirala and assured him that Israel is doing everything in its power to save as many lives as possible from the devastating earthquake.

“We are in a close relationship with the military hospital in Kathmandu and with other hospitals, and together we promise you that we will do our best to save as many lives as we can,” the commander told Koirala.

Earlier on Wednesday, the IDF’s field hospital in Nepal began operations and will work to mend the wounded from Saturday's massive lethal earthquake.

Israel's field hospital will provide medical treatment to roughly 200 patients a day streaming in from the rubble-strewn streets of Nepal and other local hospitals.

The hospital relies on a completely independent infrastructure, including 50 tons of medical equipment, and is to encompass a variety of medical departments staffed by 125 professional and experienced Israeli medical experts.
