ABU DHABI, 20th February, 2023 (WAM) — The Joint Operations Command of the Ministry of Defence has announced the completion of the search and rescue missions as part of the “Gallant Knight / 2” operation in Türkiye.

The announcement follows the Turkish Disaster and Emergency Management Authority (AFAD) announcing the completion of its search and rescue operations.

The Emirati search and rescue team will start returning to the homeland today after working 14 consecutive days in Türkiye. The “Gallant Knight / 2” operation came under the directives of President His Highness Sheikh Mohamed bin Zayed Al Nahyan.

The Director-General of Disaster Response, on behalf of the Turkish government, extended his gratitude to the Emirati team for the speedy response and remarkable assistance at a very critical time.

The Emirati search and rescue team is the last internationally classified team to leave Türkiye after the Turkish government announced the end of search and rescue operations. The team has succeeded in rescuing ten people and recovering 26 bodies during the operations, keeping the highest standards of safety and security.
