The death toll surged to more than 5,000 early Tuesday after a powerful, pre-dawn earthquake Monday and series of strong aftershocks collapsed thousands of buildings along the Turkish-Syrian border.

The U.S. Geological Survey said the magnitude 7.8 quake struck at 4:17 a.m. local time in the southern Turkish province of Kahramanmaras, about 20 miles from the city of Gaziantep. Scores of aftershocks followed, authorities said. Hours later, a 7.5 magnitude quake struck more than 60 miles away.

  1. Truly I tell you, the compassion & authority is one (I AM/YESHUA CRISTO is in every heart). “OUR FATHER’S” wrath and mercy on full display for all to see.

  2. Really Ukraine and Russia will send rescue teams? Do us all a favor stop fighting then you can send other countries help.

  3. Our thought and prayers from the U.S. to all of you. I hope our government has money left to send to you to help you, as our idiot “president” has given a ton to Ukraine to fight an unnecessary war.

  4. My prayers goes to all the families 🙏

    please Give me a minute of your time please so you can read this message:
    As you must already suspect, you are a being with a conscience, feelings, tastes, etc. That you are inside a physical body that allows you to be in this dimension of 5 senses. This world is governed by physical and spiritual laws that we cannot change, such as the laws of physics and the moral laws (of God) where within us we know what is right and what is wrong. If we know that lying, stealing, raping, killing, etc. is wrong and we still do it, then we have violated just and perfect laws. And like any criminal, he must be taken to jail, which in this case is death (eternal hell). Since your own conscience knows that you sinned. That said, what solution do we have?
    Well, just like when someone pays the bail of a criminal and the judge releases him, that’s what Jesus did for us, he paid for our sins, being innocent, he was condemned as a sinner. He is God made man and redeemed humanity from an eternal prison! when a person believes in Jesus who paid the bail (our sin) does his will, he repents of his sins, because you will have eternal life, that is, after death. Seek Jesus while you are alive, you still have the opportunity to free yourself from that eternal condemnation which we deserve for having sinned and He (because he loves us) made that plan and so we are saved. The Demons are attacking the mind more than ever, causing anguish, anxiety and fear out of nowhere! They take advantage of the emptiness of the soul and this in turn produces anxiety, depression and panic attacks. All this goes away with after having the protection of Jesus and he will set you free! Jesus is not a religion, he is a personal God with whom you establish a sincere and true personal relationship, who gives you a peace that literally surpasses all human understanding. May God bless you and have a happy rest of the day or night❤️ ️🙏🍃

  6. في لحظة واحدة يتغير كل شيء، اللهم لا تجعل الدنيا أكبر همنا، ولا مبلغ علمنا، وأجعل الجنة هي دارنا وقرارنا.

    إنا لله وإنا إليه راجعون

    على الأقل في هكذا وضع تكون مجانية
    لاحول ولا قوة إلا بالله

    لو كان نهائي كرة القدم لا كانت تذاكر مجانية

    ربي يهدينا

    الله أكبر
