Haneyya extends condolences over deadly quake in Türkiye and Syria
Hamas and officials from all factions mourned the death of the victims who passed away in the disaster, extending their deepest condolences to their families and praying for all Muslim and Arab nations to stay safe from harm.
A 7.8-magnitude earthquake on Monday killed hundreds of people in southern Türkiye and in neighboring Syria and caused material losses.
Head of Hamas’s political bureau Ismail Haneyya sent a message of condolence to Turkish President Recep Tayyip Erdogan over the deadly quake that hit the country earlier Monday.
"We, in Hamas Movement, extend our sincere condolences to and sympathy with the Republic of Türkiye over the deadly earthquake that left human losses and material damage," Haneyya said.
May Allah shower the deceased with His mercy, grant the wounded speedy recovery, and protect Türkiye from harm, the Hamas leader added.
He further called on the international relief and humanitarian agencies to act urgently to provide emergency relief assistance to the affected persons.
