Syria Earthquake Victims’ Plight Compounded by US Sanctions

Alwaght- The death toll from earthquake and major aftershocks in Turkey and Syria rose above 33,000 and looked set to keep growing as chances of finding more survivors growing more remote.

In a central district of one of the worst-hit cities, Antakya in southern Turkey, business owners emptied their shops on Sunday to prevent merchandise from being stolen by looters.

Residents and aid workers who came from other cities cited worsening security conditions, with widespread accounts of businesses and collapsed homes being robbed.

Facing questions over his response to the earthquake as he prepares for a national election that is expected to be the toughest of his two decades in power, President Tayyip Erdogan has said the government will deal firmly with looters.

In Syria, the disaster hit hardest in the rebel-held northwest, leaving homeless yet again many people who had already been displaced several times by a decade-old foreign-backed militancy.
