    Breaking News: Another Earthquake Strikes In Turkey, Leaving Three People Dead.

    On 6 February, a 6.4 magnitude earthquake struck near the city of Antakya, near the border with Syria, where massive quakes devastated both countries.

    In Turkey and Syria, there have been more than 680 injuries.

    The tremor was reported by Turkey’s disaster and emergency service Afad to have happened at 20:04 local time (17:04 GMT), and it was followed by numerous aftershocks.

    On February 6, a 7.8-magnitude earthquake in the same region killed more than 44,000 people in Turkey and Syria.

    Interior Minister Süleyman Soylu announced that those killed by the tremor on Monday were discovered in Antakya, Defne, and Samandagi while advising people against going inside potentially hazardous structures.

    According to Mr. Soylu, 213 individuals were hurt in Turkey.

    At Antakya, witnesses told Reuters that buildings had sustained additional damage, while the mayor of Hatay, Turkey’s southernmost province, claimed that people were trapped under debris.

    When she hugged her kid, 7, Muna al-Omar, a local, sobbed to Reuters, “I believed the earth was going to break up under my feet.” When the most recent earthquake struck, she was in a tent in a park in the heart of Antakya, she claimed.

    Since the earthquake on February 6, Turkish authorities have registered more than 6,000 aftershocks, but the BBC’s team in the area reported that the most recent tremor felt significantly stronger than earlier ones.

    The earthquake, which was also felt in Egypt and Lebanon as well, was believed to have caused 470 injuries, according to the Syrian Observatory for Human Rights.

    Following the tremor on Monday, according to Afad, there were 32 aftershocks, the greatest of which had a magnitude of 5.8.

    The streets are filled with anxiety and terror as rescue workers and ambulances struggle to reach some of the worst-affected districts where the walls of severely damaged buildings have crumbled.

    A bridge is among the several buildings that were still intact after the earthquake on February 6 that have since collapsed. Roads that once had many fissures now have deep scars, making it more challenging for emergency personnel to reach potential disaster areas.

    In Antakya, the capital of Hatay Province, which had already been severely damaged by the previous earthquake, an AFP writer described scenes of terror as the most recent earthquakes caused clouds of dust to rise in the city.

    Building walls also collapsed, according to AFP, with numerous individuals screaming for assistance who appeared to be injured.

    When the newest earthquake struck, according to Ali Mazlum, he was seeking the remains of family members from the last quake.

    “You’re not sure what to do. We held each other as the walls began to collapse in front of us. It appeared as though the ground were about to engulf us “said he.

    Afad first advised people to avoid coastlines in a tweet due to the possibility of sea level rise, but the advice was later taken down.
