    On Monday, fans of Novi Pazar and Radnicki football clubs tossed toys onto the pitch to show sympathy with children devastated by the tragic earthquakes in Turkey last month.

    In the Serbian Super Liga match at the Novi Pazar City Stadium, no tickets were sold, and fans were requested to arrive with soft toys.

    Supporters tossed the toys onto the field prior to the start of the game, which Novi Pazar won 1-0.

    Novi Pazar is the largest city in Serbia’s Sandzak region. Ishakoglu Isa Bey, the creator of Bosnia’s capital Sarajevo and North Macedonia’s capital Skopje, founded it around 1459-1461.

    The devastating twin earthquakes on February 6 killed around 46,000 people in Turkey’s southern region.

    Adana, Adiyaman, Diyarbakir, Gaziantep, Hatay, Kilis, Malatya, Osmaniye, Elazig, and Sanliurfa were among the 11 provinces affected by the magnitude 7.7 and 7.6 quakes, which were centered in Kahramanmaras.
