An Israeli cargo ship unloaded humanitarian aid in the Port of Mersin, in Turkey, Friday morning for the victims of the past month's deadly earthquakes that struck Turkey's eastern region.
The ship organized by the Defense Ministry, was carrying mobile homes which will be used to house the thousands of people left homeless following the tremors near the city of Van. It docked late Thursday night.
The aid was sent per the request of the government in Ankara and the mobile homes were sufficient to house 1,000 people.
