Egyptian military cargo aircraft flew to Djibouti carrying tents, blankets, and food yesterday in the aftermath of the country’s disastrous floods.

The East African nation is facing what amounts to two years’ worth of rain in two days. According to the United Nations, a quarter-million people have been affected and the number will continue to grow as heavy rains are expected throughout the whole of December.

General Commander of the Armed Forces Minister of Defense and Military Production Mohamed Zaki ordered the military cargo aircraft to take off on December 8th. 

Spokesman Bassam Rady said that Egypt expressed a commitment to offer humanitarian aid last Wednesday, and is looking forward to working on issues of stability and development in the African continent in consideration of Egypt’s presidency within the African Union.
