Israel Quivers from Third Mild Earthquake in a Week

By: JTA

The third mild earthquake in a week struck Israel around noon Sunday in the area of Tiberias and the Sea of Galilee and measuring between 3.5 and 4 on the Richter scale. No injuries or damage was reported.

An earthquake measuring 3.6 on the Richter scale occurred on the Sabbath in northern Israel, with its epicenter between the Hula Nature Reserve and the Sea of Galilee.

A third earthquake with a 3.5 magnitude occurred late last week, also near Tiberias.

It is not known what the string of mild earthquakes means, and if it is a precursor of a larger earthquake in the region.

The Tiberias region has been shaken by disastrous earthquakes in the past, the largest one being in 1837, when Tzfat (Safed) was destroyed and approximately 4,000 people were killed. In nearby Tiberias, between 700 and 1,000 people died.

  1. These quakes are a reminder that Israel sits alongside the Great Rift, a huge fault line in Earth’s crust. Large earthquakes have happened in Israel before and it is certain they will happen again. The only questions are when and how prepared nations in the region will be when the big one eventually happens.

  2. Next time it will crack al-Aqsa Mosque:-)

  3. So is God trying to shake that mosque off the mountain without hurting anyone?
