More than 50,000 people lost their lives in the earthquake that struck Turkey and Syria, with its epicenter Kahramanmaraş.

Vedat Marjan, head of the Public Security Department at the General Directorate of Security, said during his presentation of information on post-earthquake losses to the Parliamentary Investigation Committee that 170 teams and 461 people were assigned to work in the area to identify the victims.

He said that through these efforts, the identities of 3,755 citizens killed in the earthquake were identified through fingerprints, and 275 were identified through photos.
