Turkish Communications denies “transfer earthquake bodies in bags”


The statement published on the account of the Turkish Directorate of Communications and Anti-Disinformation Center on the (X) platform stated that the truck that appeared in the video in question was carrying body bags.

This is “as claimed,” and the statement said that it was determined that the images in question were not recorded in İskenderun, but rather at a gas station on Ataturk Street in the Samandag area.

 It was said that the bodies were transported in bags on the bed of the truck in Hatay Iskenderun, but the rumor was denied by the directorate, saying:

“This claim is not true. The bodies of all our citizens who lost their lives in the earthquake that also struck Samandag have been handed over to their families and relatives and buried.”
