Al Jazeera’s Anita McNaught reports from Van on the Turkish govt’s tedious response to the earthquake in Van


To note from the video:

-People here say that aside from a small emergency team, they say they don’t even have the tools to do the job, let alone the backup they need.
-Let’s not waste it on the Kurds living here in Van, but 200 KM away the Turkish army is engaged in a military operation against Kurdish fighters the PKK.
-Where is the army they are saying to us!!!

And sadly one of the rarest reports so far mentioning the word Kurd, highlighting the Kurdish issue in Turkey.
