Four Algerian planes and a ship loaded with humanitarian aid leave for Lebanon

Algiers (UNA-OIC) – Four Algerian aircraft loaded with food products and medical equipment for the victims of the Beirut deadly explosion took off on Thursday from the military airport of Boufarik, Blida province, according to Algeria Press Service (APS).

Algerian President Abdelmadjid Tebboune held a phone call on Wednesday with Lebanese counterpart, Michel Aoun, to enquire about the situation in Lebanon, following the massive blast that ripped through the seaport area of Beirut on Tuesday.

Tebboune issued an order to send four planes carrying teams of doctors, surgeons and firefighters, as well as medical and pharmaceutical supplies, food products, tents and blankets. An Algerian ship will also sail to Lebanon with building materials to help in the reconstruction of what was destroyed by the blast.
