The National Institute for Astronomical and Geophysical Research, in Egypt, announced today, Friday, that an earthquake measuring 4.1 on the Richter scale struck the northeast of the country, at a depth of 10 kilometers north of the city of Suez.
And local media reported that the residents of Cairo and some other governorates felt the earthquake, while the Euro-Mediterranean Center network recorded an earthquake in southern Greece with a magnitude of 3 on the Richter scale.
There were no reports of casualties or injuries as a result of the earthquake, nor were there reports of any buildings collapsing.
While the National Institute for Astronomical and Geophysical Research said that the Suez earthquake is not a consequence of the devastating earthquake in Turkey, but an earthquake that occurs naturally from time to time.
The new earthquake came after several earthquakes that struck several locations in the region, the strongest of which struck southern Turkey and northwestern Syria at dawn on February 6, with a magnitude of 7.8. To date, about 50,000 people have died, followed by thousands of aftershocks.
Since the earthquake occurred, 16 Arab countries have officially announced the establishment of air bridges and the provision of urgent relief and medical aid to support Turkey, namely: Saudi Arabia, Qatar, Kuwait, UAE, Egypt, Lebanon, Algeria, Jordan, Bahrain, Libya, Tunisia, Palestine, Iraq, Mauritania, Sudan, Sultanate of Oman.
