Emergency medical aid airlift to Tunisia continues
Four aircrafts of the Royal Air Force landed Monday morning at Tunis-Carthage international airport as part of the airlift carrying emergency medical aid ordered by King Mohammed VI for the benefit of Tunisia.
Morocco has decided to send urgent aid to Tunisia after the country reached dramatic figures in terms of hospital occupancy and the cumulative incidence of infections among the Tunisian population.
The total number of Royal Air Force aircraft that have arrived in Tunis so far has reached 12 carrying 134 tons and 689 kilograms of aid.
The Moroccan emergency medical assistance comprises two complete and autonomous intensive care units, with a total capacity of 100 beds, 100 respirators and 2 oxygen generators. The assistance is meant to help Tunisia cope with the worrying social and health situation it is going through.
The royal decision to grant Tunisia an emergency medical assistance falls within the framework of the ties of active solidarity between the two countries, as well as the genuine brotherhood uniting the two peoples.
The Tunisian Presidency had expressed thanks to Morocco for the emergency medical aid, describing the move as “a noble initiative that embodies the bonds of brotherhood that exist between President Kais Saied and King Mohammed VI, and illustrates the relations of solidarity and mutual aid deeply rooted between the two brotherly peoples.”
