IPOH: The condition of the two VAT 69 commandos who were injured in the clash with the Sulu gunmen in Lahad Datu and Semporna are stable.
Deputy Home Minister Datuk Lee Chee Leong said Kpl Mohd Tarmizi Hashim, 32, and Kpl Azman Ampong, 39, had received treatment at the Raja Permaisuri Bainun Hospital.
“Doctors are observing their health progress and would decide on when to remove the shards of the disintegrated bullet from their body,” he told reporters after visiting the commandos at the hospital here on Saturday.
Lee said Azman, who sustained injuries to his spine, would be transferred to the Lumut Naval Base for further treatment.
“The naval base has the necessary medical equipments to treat his injuries more effectively,” he said.
