Turkish Navy Helps By Shipping Survivors To Safe Areas

With critical road infrastructure damaged making it difficult to reach the earthquake zone, ships are also being used to bring in supplies into the area and help take the wounded and homeless to other parts of the country.

These two videos show the TCG İSKENDERUN, which is a Turkish-made military transport roll-on-roll-off ferry which is seen transporting 98 injured people rescued from the earthquake zone and taking them from Iskenderun to Mersin.

The ship is joined by a frigate, two Corvettes and two patrol ships also assigned to provide assistance in Iskenderun in Hatay Province on the Mediterranean coast of Turkey.

The city was heavily damaged by powerful earthquakes and subsequent floods and fires.
