Saudi Arabia’s defence minister ordered the health ministry to immediately take measures for the treatment of a local man suffering from Elephantitis, the eighth such a case in the Gulf Kingdom, a newspaper reported on Thursday.

Prince Mohammed bin Salman quickly reacted to a tweet by Saudi actor Fayez Al Maklki calling on health authorities to treat Mohammed Al Anzi, who has been bid-ridden at his home in Riyadh for more than six years because of that illness.

Sabq newspaper said Prince Mohammed instructed the health ministry to take measures immediately to treat Anzi in Saudi Arabia or abroad.
