Israel this week joined a coalition of nations sending emergency rescue equipment and medical supplies to Mexico and the Dominican Republic after the two Central American nations were ravaged by Tropical Storm Noel.
Israel National News reported that Israel sent a shipment of $20,000 worth of equipment and supplies to the two countries.
In the Dominican Republic, the storm caused flooding and mudslides that resulted in 60 deaths and extensive property damage, leaving tens of thousands of people homeless.
In Mexico, more than one million people were reportedly forced to flee their homes as Noel bore down on the state of Tabasco.
