Iskenderun [Turkey]: The Indian Army had set up a field hospital in the quake-hit Turkey’s Iskenderun where 106 rescued people are being treated.

In a video shared by the Ministry of External Affairs, the rescued patients were seen being treated at the field hospital in Turkey’s Iskenderun.

The Indian Army’s field hospital set up in Turkey’s Hatay to provide assistance to the earthquake-affected people started functioning on Thursday.

“The army field hospital in Iskenderun, Hatay, Turkiye has started functioning with running Medical, Surgical & Emergency Wards; X-Ray Lab & Medical Store,” External Affairs Minister S Jaishankar tweeted on Thursday.

An Additional Directorate General of Public Information team will work 24×7 to provide relief to the affected people, according to Jaishankar.

The army field hospital has been set up under India’s ‘Operation Dost’ to provide assistance to Turkey’s earthquake-hit people.

Jaishankar, sharing photos of the facility on Twitter on Wednesday, posted: “This field hospital in Hatay, Turkiye will treat those affected by the earthquake. Our team of medical & critical care specialists and equipment are preparing to treat emergencies.”

The tweet read: “#OperationDost We Care. #IndianArmy #Turkiye.”

Jaishankar on Thursday said the sixth plane from India carrying rescue personnel, essentials, and medical equipment for earthquake relief efforts has reached Turkey.

The sixth flight carried more rescue teams, dog squads, and essential medicines for the quake-hit country.

Meanwhile, according to CNN, the death toll from the devastating earthquakes that hit Turkey and Syria earlier this week has surpassed 21,000.
