According to CNN, which cited official broadcaster TRT Haber, Turkish President Recep Tayyip Erdogan will visit three more regions on Thursday that were impacted by the deadly earthquake that struck southern Turkey on Monday.
The sixth “Operation Dost” flight, according to India’s External Affairs Minister Dr. S. Jaishankar, has arrived in Turkey. According to him, more dog squads, search and rescue teams, vital access equipment, medications, and medical gear are prepared for deployment in the relief efforts. A number of nations have sent Turkey humanitarian relief and medical supplies.
In the frigid temperatures, rescuers have been battling against the clock to find and save stranded individuals. While waiting in agony atop piles of debris where family and friends may still be buried, they have been forced to take temporary shelter and food in the icy winter cold.
According to Turkish President Recep Tayyip Erdoan, assistance has been provided to Turkey by 70 nations as well as 14 international organisations. These nations include the US, the UK, the UAE, Israel, and Russia.
In the meantime, President Tayyip Erdogan acknowledged on Wednesday that his administration’s initial response to a deadly earthquake in southern Turkey had difficulties.
