According to officials, India has despatched another plane delivering relief supplies and medical aid to earthquake-ravaged Syria and Turkey.
According to the Indian Air Force, one C-17 aircraft took off Friday night towards Syria and Turkey, “carrying relief goods and emergency equipment.”
According to Arindam Bagchi, spokesman for the Foreign Ministry, the seventh “Operation Dost” flight arrived in Syria “with almost 23 tons of relief material, including gen-sets, solar lamps, emergency and critical care medicines, and disaster relief consumables.”
He stated that the plane dropped off humanitarian supplies for Turkey at Adana Airport.
“This included medical equipment such as patient monitors, ECGs, syringe pumps, and disaster relief material, as well as supplies for our colleagues on the ground,” he tweeted.
India has initiated Operation Dost (Friendship Operation) to aid earthquake-ravaged Turkey and Syria.
Seven flights have been dispatched to two countries.
Individuals are also donating to support those in Turkey, where thousands of people were killed in Monday’s catastrophic earthquakes.
Turkish Vice President Fuat Oktay stated late Saturday that two large earthquakes rattled southern Turkey earlier this week, killing at least 24,617 people.
More than 13 million people were affected by the magnitude 7.7 and 7.6 quakes, which were centered in the Kahramanmaras province and also hit Adana, Adiyaman, Diyarbakir, Gaziantep, Hatay, Kilis, Malatya, Osmaniye, and Sanliurfa.
Several nations in the region, including Syria and Lebanon, felt the severe earthquakes that hit Turkey in less than 10 hours.
