people afraid to go home
The cold has also increased the difficulties manifold in both Turkey and Syria. For the third day in a row, people are forced to sleep in their cars even in the freezing cold. Their homes have been destroyed and even if they have survived, they are scared to go inside. Hundreds of thousands of people have become homeless in this terrible winter. A Turkish official said that the country is going through a lot of troubles at the moment. Elections are to be held here on May 14, in which the challenges for President Recep Tayyip Erdogan can be very serious. He is in power for the last almost two decades.
promise to build a house within a year
Erdogan has promised that he will rebuild every destroyed house within a year. Along with this, after the failed coup in the year 2016, emergency powers have now been used in the country. Even after the fourth day after the earthquake in both Turkey and Syria, the survivors are being searched in the debris. However, now no one is seeing any possibility of anyone’s survival. The near and dear ones of those buried under the debris are still waiting for help. Some people are crying wildly while some are calm.
Help also reached Syria
If we talk about Syria, then for the first time the United Nations team has entered the north-west region occupied by the post-rebels. But for some people now this help is of no value as it has come too late. Blockade has been done in this area by the Assad government. The aid that has reached Syria has come via the Bab al-Hawa bordering Turkey. This part is in the north-west of Syria and is working closely with the Syrian Civil Defense rescue workers.
