Those who suffer from the repercussions of war and severe conflict, certainly do not need any problems added to their plate. But after the 6 February earthquakes in Turkey and Syria, many people in this region —including Jordan, Lebanon and Egypt — live in fear over the possibility of another earthquake hitting their regions.
The earthquakes in Turkey and Syria shifted the tectonic plates in the Anatolia region, affecting the Dead Sea rift that extends from Hatay to the Gulf of Aqaba, even though it had not witnessed major earthquakes for hundreds of years.
The catastrophic earthquake left many searching for answers — even in other parts of the world. Institutes in Europe and elsewhere sent research teams to the affected area to collect data. Others deployed artificial intelligence to check for similarities between the recent earthquake area and their native regions.
The fear of those worrying about the possibility of another earthquake is only dwarfed by the pain of those who wonder if their daily misery — resulting from conflicts ravaging their societies — will ever end.
