The UAE has sent 36 tonnes of emergency medical and food assistance to support those affected by a recent terror attack in Mozambique's Cabo Delgado province.

The Daesh (IS) attack on the coastal town of Palma resulted in dozens of casualties and left hundreds injured.

People were also forced to flee their homes.

"Since joining the Global Coalition to Defeat Daesh in 2014, the UAE has sought to support all efforts by the international community to eliminate this organisation and prevent the spread of its extremist ideology," said Khalid Ibrahim Sohail, UAE Ambassador to Mozambique.

The UAE previously sent 8.7 tonnes of medical supplies to support nearly 9,000 medical professionals battling the COVID-19 pandemic in Mozambique.
