A strong earthquake has hit Turkey and up to 1,000 are feared dead. Dozens of buildings have collapsed and phone and power lines are down in the southeast of the country, near Turkey's border with Iran.
And Israel has offered aid.
From J Post:
"Following initial reports of the earthquake, Defense Minister Ehud Barak said Israel will offer Turkey "any assistance required" to deal with the aftermath of the natural disaster.
Barak ordered the Defense Ministry's head of the political-diplomatic bureau to transmit Israel's offer of help to Turkey.
Foreign Ministry spokesman Yigal Palmor said Israel was willing to provide "anything from food, medicine, medical staff and equipment and search-and-rescue teams" to Turkey. Palmor said Israel was awaiting Ankara's reply."
