by Aamaj News

The Russian Defense Ministry has sent two special flights to deliver around 40 metric tons of humanitarian cargo to Afghanistan in the wake of a recent earthquake in Herat, the Russian Foreign Ministry said.

“On November 11, humanitarian cargo weighing some 40 metric tons was delivered to Kabul by two special flights of the Russian Defense Ministry on behalf of the Russian government and the Moscow-based Afghan Business Center,” Russia’s diplomatic agency said in a statement on its website.

“Therefore, Russia continues to provide humanitarian assistance to the friendly Afghan people affected by a recent devastating earthquake in Herat,” Russia’s Foreign Ministry added.

It should be mentioned that following the earthquake last month in Herat province, at least 2,400 people died and thousands more became homeless.

Meanwhile, the United Nations High Commissioner for Refugees (UNHCR) stated that one month after the devastating earthquakes in Afghanistan, the earthquake victims are still trying to improve their lives.

This organization has emphasized Sunday, Nov. 12 that the victims of the earthquake in Afghanistan need immediate support.

However, some international aid organizations have called the situation of the victims of the Herat earthquake as catastrophic and have called for more assistance from countries.
