In a press statement, Dr. Al-Tuwaijiri said that this is the third consignment of assistance from Saudi Arabia to Lebanon and it is carrying more than 800 tons of relief goods, adding that it left earlier today from Jeddah.

He added that coordination has been made with the International Committee of Red Cross to facilitate the trucks’ entry to Lebanon so aid can be distributed among the affected people in coordination with the Lebanese Supreme Relief Committee and Lebanese Red Cross Society.

Dr. Al-Tuwaijiri also said that similar trucks will also leave for Lebanon soon — thanks to the Custodian of the Two Holy Mosques King Abdullah bin Abdulaziz, his Crown Prince Sultan bin Abdulaziz, Minister of Interior Prince Naif bin Abdulaziz and to all Saudi people.
