LIVE: an earthquake left more than two thousand dead in Turkey and Syria

The President of the United States lamented the tragedy and promised his country’s help. “I am deeply saddened by the loss of life and the devastation caused by the earthquake in Turkey and Syria. I have instructed my team to continue to closely monitor the situation in coordination with Turkey and provide all the necessary help, ”the president tweeted from his official account.

Among other reactions, Pope Francis expressed his “deep sadness” on Monday in a telegram of condolences released by the Holy See press office.

In turn, the Israeli Prime Minister, Benjamin Netanyahu, gave the green light to sending aid to Syria, after receiving a request through diplomatic channels, since both neighboring countries do not maintain official relations. Israel “received a request for humanitarian aid to Syria from a diplomatic source, and I approved it,” Netanyahu told lawmakers from his hardline Likud party, adding that aid would be sent soon.
