JNS.org – The Israeli international relief organization IsraAid has announced that it has sent a delegation to southern Japan, where more than 50 people have been killed and thousands injured during two strong earthquakes in the Kumamoto province since Thursday. This delegation joins another delegation dispatched to Ecuador, where another earthquake has killed more than 70 people and injured hundreds on Saturday.
