Earlier, the government had received offers of aid from dozens of countries around the world, but accepted aid only from Bulgaria, Azerbaijan and Iran.

Turkey has requested prefabricated housing and tents from more than 30 countries, including Israel, after an earthquake killed more than 400 people in Turkey's mainly Kurdish southeast, a foreign ministry official said on Tuesday.

"We informed all countries who offered help, including Israel, of a request on specific items for post-emergency material, such as prefabricated houses, containers and tents," the official told Reuters.

Azerbaijan was the first country extending a helping hand and sending search and rescue teams to Turkey after the massive earthquake on Sunday.
