Published in The Saudi Gazette on 07 - 08 - 2020

The King Salman Humanitarian Aid and Relief Centre (KSrelief) deployed the first Saudi planes (air bridge) to Lebanon to provide humanitarian and relief assistance to the victims of the port explosion that occurred in Beirut.
According to the directive from the Custodian of the Two Holy Mosques King Salman, the Ministry of Foreign Affairs announced that the Kingdom will provide urgent humanitarian assistance through KSrelief, in solidarity with the Lebanese people in the face of the aftermath of this painful disaster.
The explosion in Beirut port caused many casualties and injuries as well as heavy losses to property and the infrastructure.
Two planes departed Friday from King Khalid International Airport carrying more than 120 tons of medicines, devices, solutions, medical and emergency supplies, tents, shelter kits and food items to deliver to affected people in Beirut.
The emergency aid was accompanied by a specialized team from the Center to follow up and supervise the distribution operations.
Dr. Abdullah Al Rabeeah, advisor at the Royal Court and supervisor general of KSrelief, stated in a press release that the relief air bridge that was launched Friday is an implementation of directive from the Custodian of the Two Holy Mosques King Salman to provide urgent medical and humanitarian assistance through KSrelief to the people of Lebanon.
Dr. Al Rabeeah stated that the directive of King Salman embodies the established humanitarian values of the Saudi leadership, stressing that this assistance highlights the pivotal role of the Kingdom of Saudi Arabia in providing humanitarian assistance to all people in need around the world with complete impartiality.
