JNS.org – A 4.3-magnitude earthquake took place in Israel on Thursday, centering around the Dead Sea and southern Israel. Northern Israeli residents also reported feeling vibrations, but no injuries or damage have been reported.

The earthquake is not the first to occur in Israel this summer, nor the strongest. On June 27, a 5.2-magnitude earthquake whose epicenter was Egypt’s Sinai Peninsula led to tremors that were felt throughout Israel, forcing the Jewish state’s Ben Gurion International Airport to halt flights for 10 minutes.
