Many stone walls in Israel bear cracks caused by minor earthquakes.

Residents of Israel’s northern region, along the Mediterranean coast, reported that another earthquake rattled their areas at around9 pm local time Wednesday night. It was the third such earthquake to strike Israel in less than 24 hours.

Israel’s Geological Survey reported the tremor measured 4.1-magnitude on the Richter scale, and shook Israel’s northern region around the border with Syria and Lebanon.


Residents in Nahariya, the Krayiot, Haifa and Nesh all reported feeling the tremor, which was recorded by the Israel Seismic Network.

Earlier in the day, Israelis closer to the center of the country reported experiencing a second earthquake, which measured 3.4-magnitude with its epicenter located near the city of Ariel, in Samaria.

Israelis reported feeling that quake as far west as Tel Aviv, and as far east and south as Arad, in the northeastern Negev at the southern tip of the Dead Sea.

Residents also reported feeling the tremor in Kedumim (Samaria), Rosh Ha’Ayin (north of Tel Aviv), and in Ariel.

The epicenter of the first earthquake that was reported in Israel late Tuesday night was also located just 15 kilometers (9 miles) east of Ariel, and south of Shechem (Nablus), near the communities of Jurish and Migdalim.

That first earthquake measured 3.5 magnitude on the Richter scale, at a depth of three kilometers (1.9 miles).
