The world was jolted by the earthquake that struck Turkey and Syria. In both cities, the aftermath of the earthquake is a spectacle of desolation. The Associated Press reports that more than 19,300 people have died as a result of the earthquake. Many nations have donated aid to Syria and Turkey. India is contributing to "Operation Dost's" rescue effort as well. Army's special team and NDRF have been dispatched for this.
Teams from the NDRF and the Indian Army were dispatched to the Turkish region of Gaziantep. The Indian Air Force deployed supplies and medical equipment to Turkey on Thursday in addition to the rescue workers. In addition to the rescue team, a dog squad and vital medications have been dispatched on the sixth flight.
The Air Force sent medical teams from the NDRF and the Army on C-17 Globemaster transport planes. After that, India was deemed a friend by Turkish Ambassador Firat Sunel. He claimed that Operation Dost is the action that will improve ties between Turkey and India. Sunel believes that Operation Dost is a crucial undertaking.
