6.4 magnitude earthquake reported along Syrian-Turkish border felt in Israel

Residents in communities across Israel say they felt tremors, as a 6.4 magnitude earthquake along the Syrian-Turkish border is reported.

The Geological Institute confirms an earthquake was felt in Israel shortly after 7 p.m.

Turkey’s disaster response agency AFAD says the quake was recorded Monday in the southern province of Hatay, the hardest hit by a February 6 tremor which left more than 41,000 dead in the country.

The quake hit the town of Defne and was strongly felt by AFP teams in Antakya and Adana, 200 kilometers (300 miles) to the north.
