The move aims to extend a helping hand to those affected by the incidents and alleviate their suffering.

The Khalifa bin Zayed Al Nahyan Foundation established an air bridge between the United Arab Emirates and the Libyan city of Al Abraq comprising three cargo planes carrying food and health rations as well as blankets, WAM reported.
