Doha, September 15 (QNA) - Qatar International Search and Rescue Group of the Internal Security Force (Lekhwiya) returned Thursday evening to Doha after participating in relief operations in the Islamic Republic of Pakistan, which was hit by floods and torrential rain in late August.
Over two weeks, the group participated in relief work, equipped with specialized mechanisms and equipment for search and rescue operations, along with a medical team with integrated medical equipment in cooperation with Hamad Medical Corporation (HKC) and the Ministry of Interior. Integrated field hospitals were established to support and shelter those affected.
Qatar International Search and Rescue Group arrived in Karachi on September 2, coinciding with the State of Qatar's first airlift flights to support the Islamic Republic of Pakistan.
The Standing Committee for Rescue and Relief Works and Humanitarian Aids for Afflicted Areas in Brotherly and Friendly Countries assumed the task of preparing relief materials and coordinating with the concerned authorities to deliver them to the affected areas.
