Ali Acar, a member of Syrian Cooperation Platform, told AA that including the last two trucks the total number of trucks sent to Syria reached 41.

"We wish the blaze in Syria would be put out in the shortest time possible. Let this donation reach to needy ones and heal their wounds a bit. I sincerely thank all Sanliurfa residents and all people who contributed to this campaign," said Acar.

Former mufti of Aleppo's Al-Bab district, Mohammad Zakaria Massoud who will accompany to trucks into Syria, thanked Turkish public and the officials for their assistance and said, "I thank all people for their help. We highly need medicine, surgical equipment and food. Residential areas were heavily damaged because of the conflict, we would need constructional assistance after civil war."
