Turkey is going to medically treat six victims of an explosion in Kosovo.

More than 40 people were injured after a gas cylinder explosion in a restaurant in the Ferizaj city on Tuesday.

Some 14 people with severe burns on their bodies were transferred to the Kosovo University Clinical Center in the capital Pristina.

Ferizaj Mayor Agim Aliu told Anadolu Agency that Kosovo's Health Ministry forwarded the necessary documents and the six seriously injured people are expected to be transferred to Turkey late this evening or Thursday morning.

"The Physicians Board within the Kosovo University Clinical Center stated that six of the injured are in serious condition and they should be sent abroad for treatment," noted Aliu.

Aliu previously said on his social media that they contacted the Turkish Embassy to facilitate the process for the seriously injured people.
