Istanbul: Turkey ends rescue operation in Syria earthquake. This was stated by the authorities of the Turkish Disaster Management Authority. The massive earthquake in Turkey and Syria has claimed tens of thousands of lives. In order to bring out the people trapped under the debris of the building, many rescue workers from countries including India carried out rescue operations day and night in the disaster-affected area.
Internal assistance from the World Health Organization and other countries was available in both earthquake zones. So far, 45,000 deaths have been reported in Turkey and Syria. Search and rescue operations for people trapped in the rubble have reportedly ended in most provinces.
The head of Turkey’s Disaster Management Authority, Yunis Cesar, told an international media outlet on Saturday that the search would end by Sunday night. Turkey is reeling from the worst disaster in its history. César added that Turkey has been significantly affected by the damage from the earthquakes and aftershocks.
A magnitude 7.8 earthquake hit southeast Turkey and neighboring Syria on February 6. The magnitude of the earthquake left more than 45,000 people dead and over a million homeless, causing a massive crisis for both countries. Estimates suggest that the economic cost will be in the billions of dollars. Many countries who understood the severity of the earthquake came to Turkey and Syria with a helping hand, which was a great relief for both countries.
