On February 6, 2023, Turkey and Syria suffered a major earthquake measuring 7.8 on the Richter scale, followed by several dozen major aftershocks ranging from 5 to 7 on the Richter scale.

The death toll on February 22, 2023 is more than 46,000 dead, this toll not being the final toll, it could amount to 70,000 dead, according to Turkonfed.

According to the UN, it could be the biggest natural disaster in Turkey's history. No more devastating earthquake could be recorded in the past in Turkey. As of February 22, 2023 the UN speaks of a humanitarian crisis currently making around 1.5 million people homeless in southern Turkey.

We are talking about damage that could exceed 80 billion dollars. The city of Nurdagi in Turkey was destroyed by the earthquake and will be completely razed by the Turkish authorities.

In Syria, the situation is said to be even more critical, after 12 years of civil war, humanitarian aid is struggling to get there for political reasons.

Two weeks after the first earthquakes, southern Turkey was again hit by earthquakes of magnitude 5 and 6.
