The materials will be provided next week, states Singapore’s Defence Minister.
SINGAPORE: The Singapore Armed Forces (SAF) will be providing humanitarian products to those impacted by the conflict in Marawi next week, stated Defence Minister Ng Eng Hen
In a Facebook post on Saturday (Aug 5), Dr Ng said SAF systems are presently preparing the products donated by SAF and the Singapore Red Cross for the numerous thousands of civilians that have been displaced from their houses by ISIS-affiliated groups in Marawi
These civilians are still in short-lived evacuation centres in close-by locations, he added.
A Republic of Singapore Air Force C-130 transportation aircraft will be providing the products next week, said Dr Ng
This comes after the minister had actually used support to Philippine Secretary of National Defense Delfin Lorenzana previously this month, which the latter had actually accepted in principle.
