More than 28 thousand deaths in Turkey-Syria: the number can go above 50 thousand; Looting and crime increased amid tragedy, 48 arrested


The earthquake has caused dangerous devastation in Turkey and Syria. The death toll is continuously increasing in both countries. So far 28,192 people have died. The number of injured has crossed 78 thousand. Meanwhile, 48 people have been arrested on charges of looting from 8 provinces of Turkey. Of these, 42 people are from Hatay province. At the same time, 62 building contractors have also been detained in Turkey. In view of the collapsed buildings due to the earthquake in Adana city, action has been ordered.

On the other hand, Martin Griffiths, the chief of the unit that sent the UN's aid, said - the death toll from the earthquake could be double. As the debris is cleared, the bodies will be recovered. The rescue operation is in the final stage. But we do not know when it should be stopped.

At the same time, timely help is not reaching Syria. The reason for this is the debris accumulated on the roads after the earthquake. In the city of Harem, a father said that his daughter was buried under the rubble but no one helped her. Abu Ali said- My daughter was alive even a day after the earthquake. Help did not reach him even after 24 hours of being buried under the debris. We didn't have any machines to clear the debris. We waited for help. A lot of time has passed. I myself pulled out his dead body with my own hands.
