45 people to arrive in Yerevan from Lebanon
Commandant for the state of emergency in Armenia Tigran Avinyan posted the following on his Facebook page:
"The third Armenian plane carrying humanitarian assistance will depart for Lebanon soon. Armenia and Artsakh (Nagorno-Karabakh) will provide more than 36 tons of first necessity items, food and medicine to Lebanon via three flights.
Fifty-six Lebanese-Armenians have moved to Armenia via the first two flights, and tonight, another 45 will arrive in Yerevan via the plane returning from Lebanon. They are the Lebanese-Armenians who were left homeless and without food as a result of the explosion that took place in Beirut. They are either citizens of Armenia or members of a family of citizens of Armenia and have places to stay in Armenia.
The Armenian people stand with the fraternal Lebanon, and Armenia’s assistance will be ongoing."
