ANKARA (AA) - Turkey will send around 110,000 tons of flour and legumes as aid to needy countries, the country’s Official Gazette announced early Wednesday.

According to a presidential decree published in the gazette, the Turkish Grain Board (TMO) will supply up to 100,000 tons of flour and 10,000 tons of legumes to the Turkish Red Crescent (Kizilay), which will distribute it to civilians in need, especially in Syria.

The Disaster and Emergency Management Authority (AFAD) will assist the Turkish Red Crescent in the transport and distribution.

Syria has been locked in a vicious civil war since early 2011, when the Bashar al-Assad regime cracked down on pro-democracy protests with unexpected ferocity.
