Eight rescue experts from China's Zhejiang Rescue Team of Ramunion, a civilian rescue organization, have left for Turkiye after Monday's huge earthquakes jolted the country and its neighbor Syria and resulted in heavy casualties.

Carrying life detectors, tools for dismantling operations and a rescue dog, the team is expected to arrive at the affected area in Turkiye on Wednesday afternoon local time, the team said in a media release early on Tuesday.

All eight rescuers have rich experiences in international rescue operations, it said.

Established in 2008, the Ramunion rescue team has participated in 287 rescue missions, 16 of which were out of China.
