Israel sent housing assistance for up to 1,000 people in Turkey afected by two earthquakes that hit the country in October.

The mobile homes, which were requested by the government in Ankara, were delivered by the Defense Ministry on Friday morning, the Jerusalem Post reported.

In October, a 7.2 magnitude quake killed 600 people in Turkey’s eastern region, leaving thousands homeless. Less than three weeks later, another 5.7 earthquake hit the same region, killing five and burying scores under rubble.

After the first quake, Israel sent a civilian aircraft to Turkey carrying prefabricated homes, warm blankets and mattresses.
