Heavy fighting in central and northern Helmand Province between the Afghan forces and opposition forces has led to an increase in the numbers of war-wounded presenting to the Médecins Sans Frontières/Doctors Without Borders (MSF)-supported Boost Hospital, in Lashkargah. During the most intense phase of the fighting, from June 21 to July 5, MSF medical teams working in the hospital treated 68 patients with injuries related to the clashes.
