    The European Commission added €30 million to the €33 million allocated earlier, to finance emergency aid for Lebanon. European Commissioner Janez Lenarcic, in charge of crisis management, announced, according to AFP, quoted by Agerpres.

    On August 9, the European Commission announced that will offer another €30 million to support the Lebanese people, suffering from the Beirut explosion.

    The European Commission pledged a total of €63 million to help Lebanon and the Lebanese people. From the €63 million, €33 million had already been announced by Commission President Ursula von der Leyen,” the commissioner said in a statement.

    “The new European Union (EU) humanitarian funding will be made through United Nations agencies, NGOs, and international organizations. It will be subject to strict control. The most affected people will benefit from this help in order to cover their essential needs,” Commissioner Janez Lenarcic insisted.

    We are also committed to supporting the Lebanese in the long term to help them rise,” Lenarcic added.

    The promised €30 million funding will enable the country to meet the most pressing needs of those affected by the devastating August 4 explosion in Beirut,” he said.

    Janez Lenarcic thanked all member states for their solidarity with the mobilization of hundreds of search and rescue experts and the sending of medical aid to Beirut since the first day after the explosion that devastated the Lebanese capital. 

    On August 4, a massive explosion rocked the Lebanese capital. According to the preliminary information, there are no Moldovan citizens affected by the explosion. LBC International writes that the explosion took place during welding work to seal the holes through which the intruders could commit thefts.

    Sources in the Lebanese capital told TASS correspondent Dmitri Zelenin of Beirut that the explosive device was seized from a Moldova-flagged ship with a Ukrainian crew in 2013. The ship had left Georgia for Mozambique, where it was to unload the cargo.
