BEIRUT, Feb 11 (Reuters) - A shipment of Italian humanitarian aid destined for government-held parts of Syria landed in Beirut on Saturday, Italy’s envoy to Damascus said, in the first European earthquake assistance to the government.
The 30-tonne shipment includes four ambulances and 13 pallets of medical equipment, charge d’affaires Massimiliano D’Antuono told Reuters. A team of four doctors was also en route, he said. (Reporting by Maya Gebeily; Editing by Alison Williams)
