Director of Communications Fahrettin Altun made a statement regarding the social media posts about forest fires. In a statement made on his Twitter account, Altun emphasized that the so-called aid campaign aimed to show Turkey incapable.
“Currently, most of the information spread on social communication platforms, instant messaging groups and forums is fake news. Even in the event of such a natural disaster, let’s not fall into the trap of those who spread such lies. Please trust the statements of official authorities.
“It was started to weaken our unity”
Every well-intentioned aid and contribution is a requirement of our national unity. However, as of this evening, the so-called aid campaign, which was organized from abroad and from a single center, was launched with ideological motives, with the aim of making our state weak and weakening our state-nation unity.
“Our government is standing up”
Our Turkey is strong. Our state is standing tall. As our President said, we will make up for all our losses, except the lives we lost, and we will put out this fire that burns us.
