For this reason, the people sometimes turn into deep sadness and sometimes into anger about their personal losses.” In addition, there are difficulties with the water and food supply, which stress and sometimes frustrate those affected.

ISAR head of operations Steven Bayer said: "It can be seen that the sadness is slowly giving way to anger."

Update vom 11. Februar, 14.05 Uhr: Wegen einer sich verschlechternden Sicherheitslage haben deutsche und andere Hilfsteams ihre Rettungsarbeiten in der Erdbebenregion in der Türkei am Samstag unterbrochen. Wie ISAR Germany und das Technische Hilfswerk (THW) mitteilten, unterbrachen beide Teams in Abstimmung mit dem türkischen Katastrophenschutz Afad ihren Einsatz, da sich die Sicherheitslage in der Region Hatay offenbar geändert habe.

„Es gibt zunehmend Berichte über Auseinandersetzungen zwischen verschiedenen Gruppierungen, auch Schüsse sollen gefallen sein“, hieß es weiter. Die Organisationen wollen jedoch ihre Arbeit wieder aufnehmen, sobald dies wieder sicher möglich ist. Kurz zuvor hatte auch das österreichische Bundesheer seinen Rettungseinsatz in der Türkei wegen der Sicherheitslage ausgesetzt. „Es gab Zusammenstöße zwischen Gruppen“, sagte ein Armeesprecher zur Begründung, ohne dazu nähere Angaben zu machen. Wie der Sprecher weiter mitteilte, hielten sich die österreichischen Kräfte gemeinsam mit anderen Hilfsorganisationen ebenfalls „in einem Basiscamp in der türkischen Provinz Hatay auf und warten auf Anweisungen“.

Die Rettungskräfte der Organisationen hatten in den letzten Tage weiter nach Überlebenden unter den Trümmern gesucht.
