Israel is sending humanitarian aid to the Republic of Congo where 200 people were killed Sunday in an explosion at an ammunition depot in the capital city of Brazzaville.
The aid, which includes emergency medical equipment for the treatment of burns, will be delivered with help of Magen David Adom in South Africa.
Aid agencies estimated that at least 2,000 people have been forced out of their homes by the explosions and there are concerns about the government's ability to cope.
