Rescue and relief efforts are ongoing in Turkey and Syria. A 7-month-old baby has been pulled out alive after 140 hours in Turkey.

According to foreign media reports, a 13-year-old girl was pulled out alive from the wreckage after 136 hours, while a 70-year-old woman was pulled out alive from the wreckage in Qaharman Marash.

Relief operations were suspended in some areas due to security concerns.

Dozens of people were arrested for trying to rob or cheat the earthquake victims, while 12 people, including the contractors of the collapsed buildings, were detained.

The number of deaths after the earthquake in Turkey and Syria has exceeded 28 thousand. 24 thousand 617 deaths occurred in Turkey and 3 thousand 574 deaths in Syria.

UN officials fear that the death toll from the earthquake in Turkey and Syria could double.

The United Nations has warned that nearly 900,000 people in the two countries are in urgent need of hot food. According to the World Health Organization, about 26 million people have been affected by the earthquake.

The World Health Organization has appealed for $42.8 million to address the immediate needs in the earthquake-affected areas.

The UN Secretary-General urged the Security Council to allow the opening of cross-border aid centers between Turkey and Syria, with the Security Council meeting to discuss Syria next week.

Meanwhile, the border between Armenia and Turkey was opened for the first time in 35 years, with the aim of allowing trucks loaded with food and water to enter the quake-hit area.

More than 12,000 buildings were either destroyed or severely damaged by the earthquake in Turkey.
