Emir of Qatar Tamim bin Hamad Al Thani said his country will provide the necessary support to help Turkey and Syria mitigate the effects of the earthquake that struck the country at dawn yesterday.

This came in a tweet he posted on Twitter, in which he mentioned that Qatar stands with the brotherly Syrian and Turkish peoples and that it provides the necessary support to mitigate the effects of the earthquake that struck the two countries.

The Emir of Qatar expressed his condolences to the families of the victims, wishing a speedy recovery for the injured.

The Qatari Ministry of Foreign Affairs stated, in a statement, that Doha has allocated 10,000 mobile homes to help those affected in Syria and Turkey, noting that these homes will be transferred to the affected areas, as part of continuous efforts to provide relief to those affected.

A devastating earthquake measuring 7.8 on the Richter scale struck southern Turkey and northern Syria at dawn on Monday and was followed by aftershocks felt by residents in neighboring countries, including Egypt, Lebanon, and Iraq.

Many countries rushed to send relief aid to the two countries, as search and rescue work is still underway in the earthquake-hit areas.
