Egyptian President Abdel Fattah Al-Sisi expressed his deepest condolences and full solidarity with the people of Syria and Turkey and their families, after a 7.8 magnitude earthquake struck the two countries early this morning.
Al-Sisi reiterated Egypt’s readiness to provide aid to Turkey and Syria as they recover from the impact of this earthquake, expressed earlier on Monday in a statement from the Ministry of Foreign Affairs, according to “Egyptian Streets”.
The earthquake struck near the Turkish city of Gaziantep — about 40 kilometers from the Syrian border, killing over 2000 people. The death toll is expected to rise further, as many buildings have collapsed, trapping victims under the rubble.
