The team includes specialized doctors, experts in crisis and disaster management from the Red Crescent Society, and members of civil defense.
“The intervention team will be in the district of Deir Ismail Khan, in the Khyber Pakhtun province, which is inhabited by nearly 40 million Pakistanis who suffer difficult living conditions, especially with the formation of lakes that covered entire villages, and the displacement of their residents, who are currently homeless,” Palestinian Foreign Minister said.
