Ubicación de los daños en Turquía-Siria tras el terremoto
February 8, 2023 - Un esfuerzo internacional de ayuda se realiza en Turquía y Siria tras el devastador terremoto que ha cobrado la vida de más de 11.200 personas, y se espera que el número de víctimas siga en aumento.
Turkish President Tayyip Erdogan declared a state of emergency in 10 provinces devastated by the two earthquakes.
As the scale of the disaster became ever more apparent, the death toll looked likely to rise considerably.
Thousands of buildings were toppled, hospitals and schools wrecked and tens of thousands of people were injured or left homeless in several Turkish and Syrian cities by the magnitude 7.8 quake – the deadliest in Turkey since 1999 – and a second one hours later.
