At the same time, earthquake tremors are still being felt continuously in Turkey and Syria. In this episode, according to the United States Geological Survey, the tremors of an earthquake of magnitude 4.3 have been felt once again in Turkey’s Noordagi city. After the devastation caused by the earthquake, there is still a possibility of the people trapped under the debris being alive. In view of this, the relief and rescue work is going on very carefully, those who are alive are searching for their near and dear ones in the pile of debris.

According to statistics, about one lakh people are involved in the rescue operation to safely take out the people trapped under the debris in Turkey and Syria, in which trend teams from different countries are also involved. However, still the number of rescuers is very less. People are screaming from inside the rubble, but there is no one to pull them out. Let us know the major updates of the Turkey-Syria earthquake…

Officials and doctors said Monday’s 7.8-magnitude earthquake killed 15,000 people in Turkey and Syria. As the rescue operation is progressing rapidly, the figures of dead and injured are also increasing.

Giving details of ‘Operation Dost’, the Ministry of External Affairs (MEA) on Wednesday said that ten Indian nationals are stranded in remote parts of earthquake-hit Turkey and one national is missing.

Giving information, the Foreign Ministry official said that 10 Indian citizens are safe. Along with this, he also said that the missing Indian citizen was on a business trip to Turkey in Malta. Sanjay Verma, Secretary (West), Ministry of External Affairs told that Indians are relatively safe in Turkey. He said that the government is in touch with the family members of the missing Indian in Turkey.

The World Health Organization is deploying specialist teams and flights with medical supplies to Turkey and Syria after Monday’s devastating earthquake. WHO Director-General Tedros Adhanom Ghebreyesus told a media briefing on Wednesday that a team of three people would also leave for the coordination of services.

Turkish police have arrested five people for “provocative posts” on social media about Turkey’s deadly earthquake, according to a tweet by Turkish police. At the same time 18 people have been detained.

Twitter has been banned in Turkey, the Netblox Internet Observatory said on Wednesday, two days after a major earthquake killed more than 15,000 people in southern Turkey and northern Syria.

President Recep Tayyip Erdoğan is scheduled to visit Pazarkık, the epicenter of Monday’s earthquake, and Hatay province, the most affected by the disaster, amid calls for more government help in the disaster-hit region.

Even two days after the massive devastation caused by the devastating earthquake, there are very few incidents of people being safely pulled out of the debris. Most of the dead bodies are being found in the debris. Not only this, the bitter cold and the continuous aftershocks have made the rescue work more difficult.

At the same time, the situation in the neighboring country Syria is even worse. The quake also affected cities and towns abandoned by the government and rebels during the conflict in a country wracked by 12 years of civil war and a refugee crisis. In such cities/towns, the voices of the people crying out for help are tired.

India has announced to help Syria under G-20. India is constantly engaged in helping Turkey and Syria. Right now many NDRF teams are busy in rescuing people in Turkey.
