Two Egyptian Planes Landed In Beirut With 36 Tonnes Of Aid

In support of Lebanon’s fallen capital, Egypt is stepping up again to further help with two planes loaded with aids, including more medical supplies.

The blast on August 4th had severely impacted Beirut’s largest hospitals, rendering them barely functional ever since.

In a generous attempt to help out, much like other friendly countries, Egypt just dispatched to Beirut 36 tonnes of aids that include 14 tonnes of medicine and medical supplies.

The friendly country didn’t forget Lebanon’s other major problem, the blasted wheat silos. It included 17 tonnes of flour to help Lebanon keep the production cycle regular.

The new load of aids also include 5 tonnes of relief and other subsistence items, according to the National News Agency.

It is worth noting that Egypt was among the very first countries that rushed to help Lebanon. Right after the explosion, Egyptian President Abdel Fattah al-Sisi dispatched two airplanes loaded with medical aids.

On Wednesday, August 5th, the very next day of the blast, an Egyptian field hospital was already set up in Beirut and begun treating injured victims.

The Egyptian Ambassador to Lebanon, Yasser Elwy, was on the site as well, inspecting the work of the medical team from his country.
