A mild earthquake hit northern Israel on Tuesday, marking the fifth quake in a week to hit areas near the Kinneret.

The earthquake hit the north-western part of the Kinneret at 8:50 A.M. local time and registered a magnitude of 3.3 on the Richter scale.

On Sunday, two earthquakes rocked the Kinneret at a magnitude of 3.6 on the Richter scale.

The first earthquake on Sunday happened around noon. As in the two previous earthquakes, no damage was reported. It isn’t clear what the recent string of quakes means in terms of future seismic events.

Early in the morning on Saturday, at 2:30 A.M., another mild earthquake also with a 3.6 magnitude was recorded. According to the geophysical institute, the earthquake’s epicenter was nearby, in the area between the Hula Nature Reserve and the Sea of Galilee.

Last week, an earthquake with a magnitude of 3.5 was recorded in roughly the same place as Sunday’s earthquake.

Israel Fears Massive Earthquake after Series of Mild Tremors

Some Israeli experts fear that a massive earthquake could strike the northern region of the country which has been jolted by five mild tremors in less than a week.

The latest quake, measuring 3.3 on the Richter scale, struck northern Israel on Tuesday (22 October), but it did not cause any major damage or injuries. Some buildings developed cracks.

The tremors have prompted the Israeli Defence Forces (IDF) to issue a general alert to the citizens to update their knowledge about emergency measures during quakes.

Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu has held a special cabinet meeting to discuss the preparedness in the event of a quake. Local officials have also been involved in discussions over emergency measures.

Experts are closely studying the situation in order to come up with a response.

“There were similar cases in the past in which a number of earthquakes clustered around the same time and place, among other cases in Lebanon and the Gilboa. The truth is we don’t know what this recent string means,” Uri Friedlander, chief of the Israel Geophysical Instituted, told the Haaretz.
