A picture that tells the story of the devastation and pain after the earthquake in Turkey and Syria


At first glance, this picture looks like thousands of pictures showing the condition of people affected by earthquakes in Turkey and Syria these days.

The picture shows a man wearing an orange jacket. His face gives the impression that he is lost somewhere.

He is sitting in the rubble of a building. This once vibrant building is now a pile of rubble.

The man's right hand is in his jacket pocket to protect against the brutal cold in sub-zero temperatures, which is an added concern for people who have lost everything in an earthquake. One hand is in the rubble.

If you think a little, you can see that this person is holding a hand in the debris with his left hand.

This hand belongs to a young woman.

The AFP photographer who took the picture says that the man is Meest Hansar, who is holding the hand of his 15-year-old daughter Armak, but her daughter has died.

Ermak is lying in the same bed in which she was sleeping. Now his body is confined in two concrete blocks and an iron sheet.

Mast Hansar does not say anything but refuses to let go of his daughter's hand.

It should be noted that at least 15,000 people have been killed so far after the earthquake in southern Turkey and northern Syria on Monday. According to the World Health Organization, the death toll may rise.
