Ankara. Rescuers on Friday pulled some children alive from the rubble of collapsed buildings in Turkey and Syria. It is being considered a miracle. Till now the death toll from the earthquake has reached close to 24,000.

According to official sources, the death toll across Turkey and Syria has reached 23,700. The death toll in one of the deadliest earthquakes in the region continues to rise.

Rescue workers pulled several people out of the rubble Friday after a devastating 7.8-magnitude earthquake struck Turkey. However, temperatures are below freezing point across the region and many people currently have no shelter or warm place to stay. The Turkish government has distributed hot food as well as tents and blankets to millions of people, but the government is still struggling to reach the large number of people in need. Turkish President Recep Tayyip Erdo─čan said that the Turkish authorities’ response to the earthquake in the south of the country is not progressing as fast as the government would like.

In Syria too, the United Nations has been accused of failing to provide proper humanitarian aid to rebel-held areas of the country. UN Security Council approval is needed for UN aid to reach rebel-held northwest Syria through Turkey’s border following a devastating earthquake. However, the United Nations Security Council (UNSC) has said that it will discuss the issue next week. While the Syrian government has approved sending humanitarian aid to the frontline fronts of the 12-year civil war in the country. Syrian state media said that with the help of the United Nations, the Syrian Red Crescent and the International Red Cross, aid will be provided to those who need it.
