Based on the needs and priorities expressed by Lebanon through the European Union Civil Protection Mechanism, the Government decided to provide equipment in the form of disposable suits with chemical protection of 5th and 6th degree, latex gloves and surgical sterile gloves. The value of the equipment is about 20,000 euros, or about 150,000 kuna, announced the government on Thursday night.

Croatia will also send financial assistance to Lebanon amounting to 100,000 euros, or about 750,000 kunas, added the statement.

With today's decision, Croatia joins numerous foreign countries and international organizations in expressing solidarity with the Lebanese people and the citizens of Beirut after the disaster that hit them due to the devastating explosion two days ago.
