More than a week after a terrible 7.8 magnitude earthquake, rescue teams in southern Turkey claim they are still hearing voices from under the wreckage, providing some optimism for the discovery of additional survivors.

Rescuers were seen working in two parts of the Kahramanmaras region, where they were attempting to save three sisters who were thought to be buried under the wreckage, in live images that were shown on a BOL channel and website.

A day after saving a 10-year-old girl who was thought to have been buried for around 185 hours, rescuers in the same area on Tuesday retrieved an 18-year-old boy and a man alive from the debris.

More than 36,000 people have been reported dead eight days after the tremor and its strong aftershocks, and survival tales are becoming increasingly rare.

Martin Griffiths, the head of UN relief efforts, declared on Monday that the rescue phase of the operation was “coming to an end” when visiting Aleppo in northern Syria.

And now, he continued, “the humanitarian phase, the urgency of giving these people shelter, psychosocial treatment, food, education, and a sense of the future, that’s our obligation now.”

The “White Helmets” organization, which is actually known as Syria Civil Defense, stated last week that their search and rescue mission had come to an end. On Monday, rebel-controlled regions in the country’s north observed a seven-day period of mourning.

Due to years of conflict and an ongoing humanitarian catastrophe, international aid has been delayed to reach areas of Syria controlled by rebels. This has made it harder for survivors to cope with the cold weather and lack of food, shelter, and medicine.

The UN expressed its appreciation for Syrian President Bashar al-decision Assad’s to open two more border crossings with Turkey so that supplies could enter Syria’s north on Monday.

Fuat Oktay, vice president of Turkey, on Tuesday refuted allegations of a shortage of food and relief. He declared on live air that there were “no issues with feeding the public” and that “millions of blankets are being supplied to all places.”

More than 9,200 international workers are involved in Turkey’s search and rescue activities, according to the foreign ministry, and 100 nations have already given assistance.
