Gantz offers to send Israeli rescue aid to Turkey amid deadly floods

Defense Minister Benny Gantz offers to send Israeli search-and-rescue troops to Turkey following massive flooding in the country, his office says.

“Defense Minister Benny Gantz, through IDF channels, contacted Turkey’s defense attache in Israel and the Turkish Defense Ministry with an offer to send a Home Front Command delegation to Turkey, including search-and-rescue and medical assistance. This is in light of the powerful floods in the country that have already claimed dozens of lives,” his office says.
