Qatar said on Tuesday it will send 10,000 mobile homes to Turkey and Syria after the violent earthquakes that struck the two countries.

Anadolu Agency quoting a statement by the Qatari Foreign Ministry said, the move “is part of Qatari efforts to contribute to relieving the quake-affected people in Syria and Türkiye.”

On Monday, Qatar’s Emir Sheikh Tamim bin Hamad Al Thani ordered the launch of an airlift to help quake victims in Türkiye.

State news agency QNA said a rescue team, a field hospital, relief aid, tents and winter supplies will also be dispatched to the country.

Pertinently, with chances of finding more survivors growing more remote, the toll in both countries from last week’s earthquake and major aftershocks rose above 28,000 and looked set to keep growing. It was the deadliest quake in Turkey since 1939.
