The National Disaster Response Force (NDRF) team, who were conducting rescue operations in earthquake-hit Turkey, received a warm welcome at Adana Airport upon returning to India.

In a video clip shared by news agency ANI, Turkey's rescue and relief team, as well as local residents, can be seen clapping and thanking the NDRF personnel.

However, dog squad members Rambo and Honey took the limelight and received extra love from the people thanking the team.

Watch here.

The NDRF team returned to India today after conducting 10-day-long rescue and relief operation in earthquake-hit Turkey.

The death toll from the earthquakes in Turkey and northwestern Syria has gone past 41,000 as rescue efforts continue, Voice of America (VOA) reported.

Despite the massive disaster, several people were rescued from the rubble, which boosted morals of the rescue teams.

On Thursday, two women were pulled from the debris in Turkey's southern city of Kahramanmaras, and a mother and two children were rescued in Antakya nine days after the earthquake.

The rescue in Antakya came 228 hours after the earthquake, VOA reported citing the state-owned Anadolu news agency reported.

India has extended support to earthquakes-hit Turkey and sent NDRF team along with relief materials including food, warm clothes and medical supplies.

The Indian Government announced ‘Operation Dost’ and sent NDRF teams to Turkey immediately after a dreadful 7.8 magnitude earthquake ravaged the country.

On February 6, a devastating earthquake of magnitude 7.8 ravaged Turkey and Syria, dozing off thousands of buildings and houses.

Currently, the rescue and relief operations are underway in Turkey and Syria.
