The Qatari International Search and Rescue Group of the Internal Security Force (Lekhwiya) started establishing and managing the coordination cell for the operations of search and rescue teams for international organizations in the Turkish province of Gaziantep and the main point of contact in the region.
The Qatari International Search and Rescue Group undertakes this task based on a mandate from the United Nations Office for the Coordination of Humanitarian Affairs (OCHA), thanks to its accumulated experience in evacuation and rescue operations in many countries and regions of the world.
The Qatari international Search and Rescue Group arrived at Adana airport in Türkiye on Tuesday, 7 February, coinciding with the arrival of the first flights of the air bridge allocated by the State of Qatar to support the sisterly Republic of Turkey to confront the earthquake disaster.
The group participates in search and rescue operations, supported by specialized mechanisms and equipment, a field hospital, relief aid, tents and winter supplies.
