Iranian Foreign Ministry spokesman Nasser Kan’ani has voiced the country’s readiness to supply aid for the quake-hit regions in Turkey and Syria.

Offering condolences and sympathy to the governments of Turkey and Syria over the massive earthquake, Kan'ani in his weekly press conference on Monday wished the mercy of the almighty God for the victims of the incident and a speedy recovery for the injured.

A powerful 7.8-magnitude earthquake hit Turkey and Syria on Monday, killing hundreds, leveling buildings while people were still in their sleep, and sending tremors that were felt as far away as the island of Cyprus.

The quake was followed by dozens of aftershocks, with the strongest one having a magnitude of 6.6.

Dozens of buildings have collapsed across Turkey, and the death toll continues to go up as rescue workers search for survivors. The massive earthquake also caused multiple buildings to collapse in Syria, leading to multiple deaths.
