Iqbal also said that three Indonesians living in Hatay province are suffering from broken bones.
“In Hatay, there are nine Indonesians, three of whom are suffering from broken bones, including one person suffering from broken bones in the back,” the ambassador said.
Meanwhile, six others are reportedly wounded in Hatay.
Eleven vehicles, comprising ambulances, cars, and buses have been deployed to evacuate the Indonesian citizens affected by the quake.
He said dozens of the citizens, mostly Indonesian students, need to be evacuated to Ankara because their houses were destroyed by the quake and the health facilities in the affected areas can no longer accommodate those who are injured.
Iqbal said that Indonesian citizens live in different places across Turkey. In Gaziantep city, 40 citizens need to be evacuated to Ankara.
"These 40 people are our citizens whose houses have been destroyed," he said.
"Currently they live in mosques, in sports stadiums, and so on. We have contacted and asked them to meet at a designated place and we will pick them up from there," said Iqbal.
In addition, only 40 out of 140 Indonesians living in Kahramanmaras city will be evacuated because the other 100 Indonesians have been accommodated in a Turkish safe house.
