The International Alliance for Peace and Development is deeply concerned about the continuing fires in Australia, which have had severe consequences during this period, IAPD expresses its sincere condolences to all Australians who lost loved people in the fires, and destroyed more than 1,500 homes. Forest fires were out of control on the east coast of the country, due to high temperatures and strong winds, the number of people killed in the current fire season that started in September 2019 reached 23 people, including 12 in last week’s fires. Therefore, forest fires in Australia did not spare any living creatures. Their fires and smoke eliminated thousands of living creatures and humans.
Ecologists from the University of Sydney have estimated the number of animal victims of the fires at 480 million. Other reports indicate that the number exceeded half a billion, while fires are still ongoing, which raises fears of environmental imbalances in the region in the long -term
The Australian authorities announced the emergency on 2nd January 2020, and the government launched an unprecedented distress for the Reserve Force in the army to support firefighters and demanded other resources including a third naval ship equipped for humanitarian and disaster relief operations
