The Israel Defense Forces aid delegation to Japan returned home Tuesday, leaving medical equipment behind for local doctors to use.

The military aid delegation brought 62 tons of medical supplies and 18 tons of humanitarian aid to the city of Minami-Sanriko, hard-hit by the earthquake and tsunami that devastated Japan in March.

The team of 50 doctors, communications specialists and search-and-rescue experts spent more than two weeks in Japan, during which time they established a medical clinic and cared for 220 patients.

The team left behind the majority of the medical equipment taken to Japan by the IDF, including X-ray machinery and lab equipment.
