Turkey and Syria | Increases the number of deaths to more than 8,300

Lhe rescue efforts in southern Turkey and northern Syria have continued for the second consecutive night and early morning, but with many difficulties due to low temperatures and damaged roads.

The number of fatalities recovered under the rubble continues to rise

International aid is intensifying, but access for the machinery needed to lift the concrete slabs is proving difficult as roads are blocked by rubble and vehicles.

Turkish President, Recep Tayyip Erdogan, has declared a state of emergency for three months in ten affected provinces, which is supposed to make it easier to manage the emergency response: “I would like to remind the general public that no one should use the roads leading to and within the earthquake zone unless required, and no phone calls should be made except for urgent needs.”

Although aid is slowly coming to Turkey, the logistics and policy of aid to Syria is much worse, especially to vulnerable areas in the north-west.
