The Israeli report says that mild tremors have been felt in the Jerusalem area.

Tremors were felt as far as the Jerusalem, Beit Shemesh and Mevseret Zion areas. The IDF’s Home Front Command says the earthquake warning system has not been activated because it was of low intensity and did not pose any danger to people. Israel is a vulnerable area for earthquakes due to its location on the Syrian African Rift. This rift passes through the Jordan Valley in the eastern part of the country.
These tremors have come at a time when devastating earthquakes in Turkey and Syria have completely devastated both the countries. Even after the earthquake on February 6, the aftershocks that occurred more than 200 times in Turkey have filled people’s hearts with terror.
