The cities that the aid, which includes a monitoring team consisting of 30 people, will be sent to are Afrin, Kobane and Jazeera.
In cooperation with various nongovernmental organizations, the İHH has taken action to provide help to the Syrian Kurds who have been victims of the three-year-long civil war.
A proportion of Syria’s Kurdish population have taken shelter in the cities of Afrin, Kobane and Jazeera, located in the north of Syria, said a statement by the organization.
“In this regard, both to contribute to the resolution process and to strengthen the bound of brotherhood [between both countries], a humanitarian relief convoy of 26 trucks will be sent to Kurdish refugees,” said the organization.
Twenty trucks will set off from Diyarbakır after a ceremony on July 3, which will include the İHH’s President, Bülent Yıldırım.
