Antichrist Turkey Coalmine Blast Leaves at Least 41 Dead with Others Still Trapped in Amsara /Asmara

💭 My Note: „State television showed white smoke billowing from the mine entrance over the mountainside in the port town of Amasra…”

👉 Look at the shape of the smoke!

💭 በክርስቶስ ተቃዋሚ ቱርክ በደረሰው የድንጋይ ከሰል ማዕድን ፈንጂ በትንሹ ፵፩/41 ሰዎች ሞቱ ከሌሎች ጋር አሁንም ብዙዎች በአመስራ /አስመራ ከተማ አቅራቢያ ታፍነዋል

“አመስራ” = “አስመራ”

Amasra”, anagram: „Asmara„ = capital of the fake state Eritrea. Eritrea, together with the fascist Oromo regime of Ethiopia, Turkey, Iran, UAE, Saudi Arabia are waging a genocidal war against ancient Orthodox Christians of Northern Ethiopia – against The Ark of The Covenant.

💭 An explosion deep inside a coalmine in Turkey’s mountainous northern Black Sea region has killed at least 41 people, with rescue efforts and work to contain a fire in the facility continuing on Saturday, hours after the incident.

Turkish officials including the energy minister, Fatih Dönmez, said initial assessments indicated the blast on Friday inside the state-owned mine was caused by a firedamp explosion, a reference to the combustion of pockets of highly flammable gases trapped in the coal bed.

“All search and rescue teams are on duty,” he said, adding that the mine’s ventilation system had continued to work.

State television showed white smoke billowing from the mine entrance over the mountainside in the port town of Amasra, with a reporter at the site stating more than 12 hours after the incident: “The fire is happening underneath us, it’s still active.”

The interior minister, Süleyman Soylu, who travelled to Amasra to oversee rescue efforts, said 110 miners were inside the facility at the time of the explosion, and that 49 had been trapped in a high risk area of the mine.

Rescue workers pushed through the night as concerned relatives of those trapped gathered close to the TTK Amasra Müessese Müdürlüğü mine. Soylu said that by Saturday morning at least 58 had been rescued or escaped from the mine, and a further 11 had been taken to hospital, with the status of one miner unclear.

The incident at a state-run facility in a part of the country traditionally associated with support for Recep Tayyip Erdoğan’s Justice and Development party presents a challenge for the government. There have been a number of high-profile mining disasters in recent memory, drawing questions about whether the state has done enough to protect workers in a dangerous industry.

The head of one Turkish mining union told the local Cumhuriyet news outlet that increasing safety measures after disasters was insufficient. “The important thing is to value people while they are alive,” he said, referencing two major mining disasters in Turkey in 2014. “There are mines all over the world, but these disasters always occur in mines in Turkey,” he said.

A prolonged fire inside a mine in the town of Soma in western Turkey in 2014 caused the worst mining disaster in the country’s history, where 301 miners died from carbon monoxide poisoning and at least 162 others were injured.

That incident drew widespread public outrage, amid questions from families and observers about what they said was insufficient government oversight and lack of safety precautions at the facility.
