The hope of finding survivors alive is fading, Syrian volunteer organization says

Syria Civil Defense, also known as the White Helmets, said they have been working nonstop for more than 90 hours “in very difficult circumstances,” to rescue people trapped under rubble following the deadly earthquake that hit Turkey and Syria Monday.

The volunteer organization said they would continue rescue operations in the affected areas of opposition-controlled northern Syria into Friday. However, the organization tweeted a warning that the hope of finding survivors is now “fading.”

The impacted areas include the countryside of Aleppo in northern Syria and the countryside of Idlib in northeastern Syria.
