Mathew 24:7 For nation will rise against nation, and kingdom against kingdom, and there will be famines and earthquakes in various places.

Important Takeaways:

  • No room for the dead as cemeteries in earthquake-hit Turkey and Syria fill up
  • Bodies are piled up in stadiums or car parks for identification; coffins are being brought in and mass graves dug
  • At least five imams have rushed to Nurdağı to officiate a ceaseless rush of mass funerals, sometimes for as many as 10 victims at once. Officials brought in deliveries of coffins from neighboring villages and as far as Istanbul to provide a final resting place for the overwhelming numbers of corpses arriving in the town.
  • Country’s worst natural disaster in a generation, the death toll has surpassed 21,000 and Nurdağı and towns across southern Turkey and northern Syria are scenes of apocalyptic levels of destruction.
  • “Forty per cent of the people who lived in this town could be gone,” said Sadık Güneş, an imam in Nurdağı.
  • Across northern Syria, people now living in tents in the snow began burning whatever they could to keep warm. Food and other basic goods remained scarce.
