10 Feb Turkey’s Iskenderun Port to Open in 3 Months
During the recent earthquake, which devastated Turkey, Iskenderun Port was severely damaged. Subsequent to the earthquake, the terminal was also hit by a severe blaze that lasted for three days and destroyed around 3,670 containers. In addition, more than 1,200 buildings have been destroyed in the southern province of Hatay, where the port is located.
These challenges, which are ensconced amidst the general destruction of the earthquake, will take time to overcome and rebuild from. Management at the terminal has stated that it will take approximately three months to fully recover and restore operations to normal.
This earthquake, with a magnitude of 7.8, is one of the deadliest ever to hit the region, resulting in more than 44,000 confirmed deaths in southeastern Turkey and northern Syria.
