The second batch of aid was just sent to Beirut to offer additional assistance to the devasted city.
According to Turkey’s National Defense Ministry, a second flight by Turkish military aircraft carried additional medical supplies and equipment along with personnel from Turkey’s Disaster & Emergency Management Authority (AFAD).
A team that arrived last week from AFAD, a National Medical Rescue Team, and the Turkish Red Crescent (Kızılay) will return home on board the aircraft while seven other people will remain in Beirut to carry on with assistance activities where needed.
On Saturday after the blast, Turkish Vice President Fuat Oktay and Foreign Minister Mevlüt Çavuşoğlu visited the Port of Beirut – or what remains after the explosion.
