Istanbul (Precise Post) – In an effort to help fight the novel coronavirus, Turkey on Friday sent military cargo plane carrying medical aid supplies to Britain.
The medical equipment was sent on a Turkish Armed Forces plane from Etimesgut airport near the capital, Ankara, the Defence Ministry said on Twitter, sharing footage of the freight.
Ankara on Friday separately sent medical supplies to Libya, the Defence Ministry said. Ankara, which backs Libya’s UN-recognised government against a rival group, has military training personnel stationed in the war-torn North African country.
Turkey earlier sent aid to combat the contagious virus to NATO allies, Italy, Spain, North Macedonia, and Montenegro, as well as Serbia, Bosnia, and Kosovo.
Turkey has so far reported 908 deaths from the COVID-19 disease caused by the virus and 42,282 confirmed cases. (dpa/NAN)
