On the fifth day, the chances of finding more survivors under the rubble are fading after the catastrophe of Turkey and Syria earthquake that struck on Monday, February 6, and the series of aftershocks that killed 24,014, people and injured 79,487.

Meanwhile, aftershocks continue, following the earthquakes, as their number reached more than 1,117.

It is noteworthy that the two earthquakes that struck southern Turkey, on Monday, were of magnitudes of 7.7 and 7.6 on the Richter scale.

Rescue workers have been fighting around the clock since then, but with each passing hour the chances of finding survivors under the rubble diminish, especially in Syria

As per media reports, the authorities in Turkey and Syria said that the number of victims and injured is likely to rise due to the continuation of rescue operations and the search for survivors.

The earthquake, which is one of the deadliest earthquakes in the world in more than a decade, destroyed thousands of buildings, buried entire families under the rubble, and displaced hundreds of thousands.

After 101 hours of being trapped under the rubble, a 36-year-old earthquake survivor reunites with her husband in the southern Turkish province of Hatay.
