Israel has delivered emergency supplies to Sri Lankan authorities as more than 6,00,000 people struggling to cope with the impact of floods and mudslides that have killed 203 people and displaced more than 80,000 from their homes in recent days.

Daniel Carmon — Israel’s ambassador to India and Sri Lanka — delivered boxes of relief supplies to Colombo’s Foreign Ministry, including power generators that were taken immediately to afflicted areas.

96 people are still missing, according to Sri Lanka’s Disaster Management Center, and the death toll is expected to rise as authorities try to rescue those still stranded.
