“95 percent of the victims were rescued”
Referring to the helicopter rescue operations in the flooded region, Erdoğan said:

Other highlights of President Erdogan’s speech are as follows:
“Work is continuing to ensure the flow of energy to places where there is a power failure. Infrastructure repair work has also been launched.
Damage assessment work is carried out with 120 separate teams in 3 provinces. We immediately take up arms to reunite the citizens whose homes were destroyed in the floods, in their new homes.
Our highways are working on alternative routes for places where transportation is disrupted due to damage to roads and bridges.
We have taken all emergency measures, from credit support to tax deferrals.
We cannot bring back our people who lost their lives, but our state has the power, the opportunity and the determination to make up for any loss other than that.
We move on doing better in place of what is destroyed, planting more in place of what is burnt, and putting more in place of what is lost.
When we successfully emerge from this critical time that we are passing through, a whole new era will begin before this country and its people.
When we successfully emerge from this critical time that we are passing through, a whole new era will dawn for this country and its people. “

Erdogan continued his words as follows:
“May my Lord make his place in heaven and bring us together under the banner of dear Habibi, named Liva-ül hamd. Already, my teacher has taken our halal. No need to repeat. The information I received from my friends on Fatih, I learned how sincere he is and that he is on Sırat-ı Müstakim. I hope his place is in Heaven. “
After his speech, Erdoğan recited Fatiha for Fatih Keşaplı and gave his shoulder to carry the coffin.
