زلزال عنيف يضرب تركيا وسوريا

By Jordi Bou

February 6, 2023 - زلزال بقوة 7.8 درجات ضرب وسط تركيا وشمال غرب سوريا وأدى إلى سقوط مئات القتلى وآلاف الجرحى.

The quake, which hit in the early darkness of a winter morning, was also felt in Cyprus and Lebanon.

It was Turkey's most severe quake since 1999, when one of similar magnitude devastated Izmit and the heavily populated eastern Marmara Sea region near Istanbul, killing more than 17,000.
