Permanent Representative of India to the United Nations Ruchira Kamboj on September 15 hailed India’s disaster relief operations. She said, "In the international arena, India has consistently been a reliable first responder in Humanitarian and disaster relief situations whether it was Operation Kaveri in Sudan, operation Dost in Turkiye, Operation Ganga in Ukraine, Operation Shakti in Afghanistan, or even Operation Rahat in Yemen, we worked seamlessly with multiple stakeholders on the ground to ensure early relief and recovery.

A dramatic and complex international rescue operation to save an American man from one of Turkey’s deepest caves ended successfully on Tuesday – more than a week after after he fell seriously ill and became too frail to make his own way out. An accomplished and experienced caver, Mark Dickey, 40 year of age, had been part of a research group on an exploration mission in the Morca Cave when he reportedly began suffering from gastrointestinal bleeding and lost three liters of blood. He was part of an expedition that was exploring the Morca cave, which he entered on Aug. 30. After he became ill, a member of his party made the harrowing, hours long climb to the surface and alerted authorities on Sept. 2. The cave is located in the Taurus Mountain range in southern Turkey and reaches depths of up to 1,276 meters (4,186 feet).

The death toll in the Moroccan earthquake has passed 2,800 people as a limited number of foreign aid and rescue teams joined an intensifying race against time to find any remaining survivors high in the Atlas mountains, where many villages remain inaccessible. Moroccan authorities said they had “responded favourably” to offers of help from visiting search and rescue teams from Spain, Qatar, Britain and the United Arab Emirates, but they were yet to accept further offers of aid from other countries despite the urgent nature of the disaster – including from France and from Turkey, which experienced a deadly earthquake in February. Its president, Recep Tayyip Erdoğan, said it would help “with all means” if its offer was accepted.
