Lebanon sends new rescue mission to quake-hit Türkiye

By Stephanie Radi

BEIRUT, Lebanon (AA) – Lebanon dispatched another rescue mission to Türkiye on Saturday to join search and relief efforts there in the wake of Monday’s two violent earthquakes.

"This morning, we said good-bye to a delegation from the Muslim Scout Association departing for Türkiye to participate in the relief work in the devastated areas in coordination with the Turkish scouts," Lebanese Environment Minister Nasser Yassin said.

According to an Anadolu reporter, the rescue mission flew from the capital Beirut to Adana International Airport in southern Türkiye.

A Lebanese rescue team had arrived in Türkiye earlier this week to take part in relief efforts in the quake-hit areas.

A magnitude 7.7 earthquake struck southern Türkiye's Kahramanmaras province early Monday and another magnitude 7.6 quake hit the same area in the afternoon, killing some 21,800 people and injuring over 80,000 others, according to the latest official figures.

In Syria, government and rescue officials reported that nearly 3,553 people were killed and more than 5,270 others wounded in the quakes.
