Egypt has sent its Mistral helicopter carrier to Libya to serve as a field hospital for the victims of the hurricane that hit the eastern part of the country. The hurricane swept through large areas of eastern Libya, killing thousands and leaving widespread destruction. President Al-Sisi said that he ordered the sending of the Mistral carrier because it is capable of managing a crisis without being a burden on the host country. He also said that they are working to direct the injured to hospitals or the Mistral carrier. Derna and other areas of eastern Libya were among the most affected by the hurricane.
