Tremors are felt in northern Israel in what appears to be a minor earthquake centered in Lebanon.
Israel’s Energy Ministry says that shortly before 9 p.m. local time, an earthquake is felt in the north, and its source is being investigated. It later adds that the quake registered 3.9 on the Richter scale and was centered in Lebanon about 123 km. north of Majdal Shams.
Media outlets in Lebanon are reporting residents experiencing earthquake tremors throughout the country.
There have been several small quakes felt in Israel over the past two days since a massive earthquake brought devastation to Turkey and Syria early Monday morning.
