In response to the crisis in east Libya, international teams continue arriving to collaborate in the rescue efforts conducted in the storm-struck cities.
Spanish rescue teams have launched their search and rescue operations in the severely affected city of Derna which will be crucial in locating survivors and providing immediate assistance.
Meanwhile, France has announced plans to establish a hospital that will commence operations and start admitting patients within 48 hours. This move is expected to provide much-needed medical aid and support to the flood-stricken region.
In a significant development, the United States, through its ambassador Richard Norland, has pledged an initial financial contribution of one million dollars to aid those impacted by the devastating floods. Norland highlighted the remarkable outpouring of support and assistance from across Libya and its neighboring countries. He affirmed the U.S.’s commitment to closely collaborate with local Libyan authorities and international partners to bolster relief efforts.
Adding to the international aid efforts, a Russian military aircraft laden with relief materials landed at Benina Airport in Benghazi. This follows Moscow’s declaration of initiating an airbridge with Libya, signaling Russia’s commitment to providing substantial aid and support during this crisis.
In a major boost to the ongoing relief operations, 250 medical personnel from the Libyan Ministry of Health, equipped with essential medical supplies, have arrived also at Benina Airport. They are set to participate in the rescue operations in the devastated eastern regions, providing critical healthcare services to those in need.
