Early this morning, by order of the Custodian of the Two Holy Mosques King Fahd Bin Abdul Aziz Al-Saud, two Saudi Royal Air Force transport planes left Riyadh carrying a relief consignment of blankets, tents, carpets and food, for the victims of the recent floods in Morocco.

It is the second of a series of airlifts, the first taking place yesterday afternoon. Additional airlifts are scheduled for August 25 and 26. This relief comes within the framework of the lead undertaken by the Kingdom of Saudi Arabia in supporting Arab and sister countries suffering from natural disasters.
