He also indicated that the National People’s Army (ANP) would provide the health sector with a hotel in Ben Aknoun (Algiers), with a capacity of 120 beds and equipped with respirators. It is always better than the straw of the jails of the ANP which every day that God makes, receive eminences from all sides, plan A, plan B, see up to plan Omega at least, capo Changriha & co having so much of tricks in their boots that the Algerian citizen gets lost.
