Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu says that Israel is preparing to send aid to both Turkey and Syria following a devastating earthquake.

“In accordance with the request of the Turkish government, I have directed the dispatch of search and rescue and medical teams,” says Netanyahu.

The prime minister adds that “a request was also received to do this for the many who were injured in the earthquake in Syria,” and therefore he has “instructed that this be done as well.”

Israel and Syria remain in a state of war, and have no diplomatic relations.
