In 2017, the Republic of Turkey provided US$10,000 through the ITF (International Trust Fund) Enhancing Human Security for victim assistance activities in Lebanon.[1]

Turkey is also affected by antipersonnel and antivehicle mines, as well as improvised explosive devices (IEDs).[2] Between 1998–2012, Turkey reported contributing approximately 68.7 million Turkish Lira (approximately $30 million) to its own mine clearance efforts.[3] Turkey has not reported the amounts contributed since then.

In 2014, the European Union (EU) contributed €19,800,000 ($26,328,060) for clearance activities in the eastern border regions, as part of an integrated border management project.[4] Turkey did not receive international funding in 2015, 2016, and 2017.
