The Syrian Ministry of Health said that 1408 were killed and 2341 injured inside Syria from the devastating earthquake that struck northern Syria and southern Turkey last Monday 06 February, the rescue operations continue in the affected areas with fading hopes of finding survivors.
Aleppo, Idlib, Hama, and Latakia provinces were the most hard hit by the double major earthquakes with hundreds of buildings collapsed and marked as unsafe, widespread damage to the entire blocks and the infrastructure coming after 12 years of the unprecedented US-led global war of terror against the Syrian people, the war that continues largely with the US and European Union inhumane sanctions.
Syrian officials estimate that more than 55,000 vehicles working on construction projects in Syria pre-2011 were stolen, and destroyed, and many were used by the US-led anti-Islamic Muslim Brotherhood and Wahhabi terrorists in the past 12 years. US and EU sanctions prevented Syria from importing new ones or fixing broken ones. The Syrian rescue workers had to dig with their hands and little household tools they have in their search for survivors until some help started coming from friendly countries.
Despite the claims of the delayed and insufficient pause of the US-imposed sanctions on Syria, there’s little help arriving in the country, most of which are from friendly countries who stood by the Syrian people against the ‘war of terror’, namely: Russia, Iran, China, Iraq, India, Algeria, and Venezuela.
Other countries who initially joined the western-orchestrated systematic slaughter of the Syrian people and had a recent awakening include some of the Gulfies who presented very shy aid to Syria in comparison to the hundreds of billions of dollars worth of weapons and ammunition they sent to terrorist groups to kill Syrians and destroy their country and countries who were instrumental in the war on Syria like Jordan and Tunisia.
And on the other side, there are countries that do not have many resources but defied the western blockade and sent aid, like Bangladesh and Lebanon.
Experts estimate that the toll might reach a horrifying total of a hundred thousand victims in both Syria and Turkey considering the destruction of entire suburbs, and entire villages destroyed on both sides of the borders, we pray not.
Meanwhile, the Syrian government has pushed forward relief convoys to the areas still under the control of the NATO-sponsored Al Qaeda in the province of Idlib and in Aleppo countryside forcing the sponsors of the terrorists to rush to ‘mediate’ and allow the relief convoys in and arguing it’s not the proper time for such PR stunts that would backfire against their anti-Syria political agenda!
