Thousands receive Turkish aid following Beirut blast



Turkey’s Humanitarian Relief Foundation (IHH) has sent aid to 30,000 people in Lebanon following last month’s Beirut port explosion.

In a statement on Wednesday, the IHH said the aid delivery is still underway.

“So far, 30,000 beneficiaries have received aid from the IHH,” the statement said.

Aid has also been delivered to three health centers in the Lebanese capital, which lacks sufficient medicine and medical supplies.

On Aug. 4, a huge explosion in the port of Beirut rocked the city, killing 191 people and injuring over 6,000 people, while dozens remain missing.

The blast caused damage estimated at $15 billion, according to official figures.
