First Batch of royal foodstuff donation reaches Beirut
Two Moroccan military aircrafts carrying the first batch of foodstuff aid sent, upon the high instructions of King Mohammed VI, Supreme Commander and Chief of the General Staff of the Royal Armed Forces (FAR), to the Lebanese armed forces and people landed Saturday morning at Beirut military airport.
Food aid delivery will continue on Sunday.
A total of 90 tons of basic food products will be dispatched to Beirut aboard eight military aircrafts.
This personal aid from King Mohammed VI came in response to a Lebanese request and in a gesture of solidarity to help Lebanon address economic challenges and the repercussions of the pandemic, the Royal Armed Forces said in a statement Friday.
