Under ‘Operation Dost’, India sends humanitarian aid to Turkey, Syria

Guwahati: India is deploying search and rescue teams to Turkey as part of “Operation Dost” and is also sending materials, supplies, medical supplies, and equipment to Syria, said External Affairs Minister S Jaishankar.

Rescue efforts are still looking for victims of the catastrophic earthquake that struck Turkey and Syria on Monday on Wednesday. The region is now receiving relief from a number of nations.

“Under #OperationDost, India is sending search and rescue teams, a field hospital, materials, medicines and equipment to Turkiye and Syria. This is an ongoing operation and we would be posting updates,” S Jaishankar tweeted.

As many individuals are still buried beneath the rubble, humanitarian organisations and rescuers predict that the death toll will grow.

Meanwhile, India had sent its fourth batch of aid which included 54 members of the Indian Army’s medical team as part of the nation’s humanitarian aid and disaster relief efforts.

The Indian Air Force’s (IAF) fourth C17 delivering aid for Turkey’s earthquake victims landed in Adana on Wednesday.

Over 9,000 people have now died in the earthquake that occurred on Monday in Turkey and Syria. At least 6,957 people have died and more than 38,000 people have been injured in Turkey, according to the country’s environment minister Murat Kurum, who said at a televised briefing on Wednesday.
