A 7.8 magnitude earthquake struck parts of Türkiye and Syria Hundreds have been killed and thousands injured. Islamic Relief is on the ground now.


On Monday February 6th at 4.17am, a massive 7.8 magnitude earthquake hit Southern Turkey followed by subsequent 6.4 and 6.5 magnitude earthquakes. 

 

These deadly quakes were also felt in Syria and Lebanon.

The current death toll in Turkey alone has risen to 1,498 with 10,000 people injured. In Syria, the death toll is currently at 810 people and the injuries have now risen above 2,000. Numbers are expected to rise drastically as rescue workers start to dig through the rubble of collapsed building.

 

Many buildings collapsed including residential buildings where many families were sleeping due to the early hours of the morning.

 

This is definitely one of the largest earthquakes experienced there for hundreds of years, Martin Mai, professor of geophysics at King Abdullah University told Al Jazeera. Large damage and local devastation has to be expected, he said.

 

Islamic Relief teams in Turkey, Syria and Lebanon are on the ground now.

Please donate generously now and help save lives.
