أكثر الكوارث الطبيعية فتكاً هذا القرن

By Jordi Bou

February 10, 2023 - الزلزالان المدمران اللذان ضرب تركيا وسوريا في 6 شباط (فبراير) أسفرا عن مقتل 21.000 شخص على الأقل، وأصبحا بذلك سابع أكثر الكوارث الطبيعية فتكاً هذا القرن.

The death toll from the 7.8 magnitude earthquake and several powerful aftershocks across both countries has surpassed the more than 17,000 killed in 1999 when a similarly powerful earthquake hit northwest Turkey.

It now ranks as the seventh most deadly natural disaster this century, ahead of the 2011 earthquake and tsunami in Japan and approaching the 31,000 killed by a quake in neighbouring Iran in 2003.
