TCG OSMANGAZI naval ship delivers aid materials, search and rescue equipment to Libyan authorities, says Turkish National Defense Ministry
Türkiye continued to send humanitarian aid to Libya, where devastating floods have left thousands of people dead.
Türkiye’s TCG SANCAKTAR and TCG BAYRAKTAR naval ships delivered the necessary equipment and humanitarian aid materials to Libya, the Turkish National Defense Ministry said in a statement.
“Following these two ships, our ship TCG OSMANGAZI set sail from Izmir and delivered aid materials and tools and equipment to serve in search and rescue operations to Libya and handed them over to the authorities,” the statement said.
“While TCG Bayraktar and TCG Osmangazi are returning to our country, TCG Sancaktar has set sail once again to deliver new aid materials to the region,” it added.
Türkiye previously sent planes carrying search and rescue teams and humanitarian survival supplies.
The Turkish Red Crescent also delivered more than 150 tons of humanitarian aid to Libya.
According to UN figures, nearly 4,000 people have died across Libya due to the devastating flooding, while more than 40,000 people have been displaced.
