Pakistan sends aid to Turkiye

After strong earthquakes rocked the southern portion of the country early on Monday morning, Pakistan sent aid as well as rescue and relief personnel to its close ally Turkiye.

On the orders of Chief of Army Staff General Syed Asim Munir, the Pakistan Army has sent out two contingents: an Urban Search and Rescue Team with rescue experts, sniffer dogs, and search equipment; and a medical team with Army doctors, nurses, and technicians, as well as a 30 bed mobile hospital, tents, blankets, and other relief supplies.

The relief teams have been sent to Adana, Turkiye, on board special PAF aircraft, where they will work closely with the Turkish government, armed forces, and embassy in Islamabad to provide aid to the Turkish people.
