India: The National Disaster Response Force (NDRF) of India extended support to Earthquake-hit Turkey in its tough situation. NDRF officer Ravinder who is part of India’s ongoing rescue operations in Turkey under ‘Operation Dost’, stated that India stands with Turkey just like a friend in need. 

He said that the NDRF has been assisting the country in rescue operations, and the police and army are working together for the same. Ravinder added that they are getting good support from the local people and they want to show that just like a friend stands with a friend in time of need. 

He further mentioned that they will continue their rescue operation and they had saved two people. Various dead bodies have also been retrieved, which are almost close to 22. 

Earlier, Turkey’s Ambassador to India Firat Sunel also called dost to India and stated, that Operation Dost is a very important operation. And this is the operation of friendship because DOST is the word in Hindi and Turkish which means friends. And this operation shows our friendship between India and Turkey and friends always help each other.

Videos from the ground show rescue operations in full swing in Turkey. Machines can be seen removing rumbles of dilapidated buildings.

NDRF officers at the scene can be seen donning jackets with the ‘Operation Dost’ logo. Special vans have been dedicated to rescuing operations.

Videos show buildings in complete shambles with ambulances on the road. There is also an India-NDRF medical post. The NDRF’s commanding officer Gurminder added that the operation has been going on for six days now. We rescued one person yesterday. The chances of finding more survivors are less now but we are still continuing with the rescue operations, he stated. 

Turkey has been devastated by a massive earthquake that caused the lives of the people of the country and also destroyed Syria.
