The earthquakes that occurred early in the morning (Monday) and today in Turkey claimed the lives of more than 2,000 people.

The name of the operation chosen for the rescue efforts: "Olive Branches".

A vanguard team is already on its way to Turkey to check the needs and an IDF delegation will leave later this evening. Earlier, Prime Minister Binyamin Netanyahu commented on the disaster and the request for aid: "In the last day there was a very severe earthquake in Turkey, which also affected other areas.

I ordered to send, at the request of the Turkish government, rescue teams and medical aid.

This is how we drive around the world, and this is how we drive in our neighborhood as well.

Since a request was also received to do this - for many victims of the noise in Syria, I instructed to do this as well," Netanyahu said.
