Iraq records more quakes overnight at borders with Iran

Iraq’s borders with Iran have been hit with five more earthquakes since Thursday night and through early Friday, Iraqi authorities said on Friday.

The Iraqi Meteorology Organization and Seismology said in a statement that Iraqi borders with Iran were affected by five quakes originating from Iran’s Sumar, on the borders with Mandali, a town in Iraqi’s Diyala.

It measured the earthquakes’ aftershocks by 3.1-5.5 Richters.

It said residents of most Iraqi provinces felt the tremor.

A violent earthquake hit the Iraqi borders with Iran in November 2017, causing more than 400 deaths and thousands of injuries.

Since then, aftershocks have been recorded at the same regions.
