Thousands of dead, wounded, and victims were killed due to the housing collapses that occurred, and the number is increasing. Cities were completely wiped out and destruction spread everywhere, as the Syrian Civil Defense declared northwestern Syria a disaster area due to earthquakes. Our people in the north of Syria described these days as more difficult than 10 years of war and can hardly be compared to them. great calamity befell us, But out of pain comes hope! We are with you!
