On behalf of the Syrian people, the Syrian Opposition Coalition (SOC) expresses its solidarity with the sisterly Turkish state and the brotherly Turkish people in their battle against the devastating wildfires ravaging many parts of Turkey.
We are deeply saddened by the losses this disaster has caused to Turkey, which hosts many Syrians who were displaced from their homeland at a time when most doors were closed to them.
We hope that Syrian refugees residing in Turkey will continue to cooperate with the Turkish authorities and abide by the local laws as they have always done. We urge them to contribute as much as possible to mitigate the effects of this disaster on Turkey and its brotherly people.
We extend our heartfelt condolences to the families of the victims as we wish the injured a speedy recovery. We pray that Turkey will soon overcome this crisis with minimum losses.
