Islamabad - Three more planes, carrying relief supplies and recovered injured, arrived at Chaklala air base on Wednesday, raising the number of total relief UAE planes to 73, the UAE Ambassador Ali Mohammad Al Shamsi said. Two planes, one from the UAE armed forces, carrying 20 tonnes of relief goods, and another arranged by the UAE Red Crescent, with 40 tonnes of relief goods arrived, the Ambassador said.

The relief supplies include tents, blankets, food items and surgical equipment, he said. The third plane brought back seven injured after their treatment in UAE. The plane airlifted 11 more injured for treatment in the UAE, Ali Shamsi said. The number of serious injured who have been shifted to UAE has now reached around 50. Most of the cases were serious with fractured spinal cord. The injured are being shifted with the consent of Pakistani medical authorities.

Later in Abu Dhabi, the plane carrying seriously injured survivors arrived at Al Bateen airbase. The airlift operation is in keeping with the directives of President H.H. Sheikh Khalifa bin Zayed Al Nahyan and General Sheikh Mohammed bin Zayed Al Nahyan, Abu Dhabi Crown Prince and Deputy Supreme Commander of the UAE Armed Forces. They were received upon their arrival by Colonel Dr Ali Obaid Al Ali, Commander of Zayed Military Hospital and other military officials.

They were taken to UAE hospitals for initial evaluations and medical treatment. Dr Al Ali said that most cases suffered partial paralysis, fractured spinal cord and other injuries. (The Emirates News Agency, WAM)
