JUST IN: Fresh quake hits Turkey-Syria border area two weeks after disaster

Syria, Egypt, and Lebanon were all affected by Monday’s earthquake, which had a magnitude of 6.3 and was centered close to the city of Antakya in southern Turkey.

Only two weeks after the area was hit by a massive earthquake that killed more than 47,000 people and damaged or destroyed hundreds of thousands of homes, another earthquake slammed the border region of Turkey and Syria on Monday.

Syria, Egypt, and Lebanon were all affected by Monday’s earthquake, which had a magnitude of 6.3 and was centered close to the city of Antakya in southern Turkey.

The European Mediterranean Seismological Centre (EMSC) reported that it only penetrated two kilometers, potentially amplifying its influence on the earth.

When the most recent earthquake struck, Muna Al Omar claimed to be in a tent in a park in the heart of Antakya.

“I thought the earth was going to split open under my feet,” she said, crying as she held her 7-year-old son in her arms.
