The Turkish disaster management agency AFAD on Sunday said it sent 850 tons of humanitarian aid materials to flood-hit Libya.

The agency in a statement said it continues its efforts to heal the wounds of Libyans hit by the Sept. 11 disaster.

It added that aid supplies sent earlier were delivered via both airplanes and ships, and Sunday's consignment was loaded from Izmir's Alsancak Port.

Floodwaters resulting from Storm Daniel contributed to significant damage across northeastern Libya, affecting housing, health facilities, water networks, and other infrastructure, according to the UN. At least 4,345 people died, 8,540 went missing and 42,000 got displaced due to the disaster.
