For the third time in less than 24 hours, the ground has shaken in Israel after yet another temblor, this time measuring at 4.1 magnitude, rattled the country Wednesday evening, according to the Israeli Geological Survey.
The shock's epicenter was reportedly located near the Syria-Lebanon border.
The European-Mediterranean Seismological Centre measured the earthquake at 4.3 magnitude and reported its epicenter was located 30 kilometers underground.
Emanuel Dror from the northern city of Nahariya told Ynet:
"I live on the 9th floor of a high-rise building. In one moment everything started to move. 'Earthquake again?' I said to myself. The chandelier in the living room started to move. I realized that this was the sign of an earthquake in our area, in Nahariya this time," he said.
Sarah Cohen, also from Nahariya, said:
"I was sitting on the couch in the living room and suddenly the couch started to move. The bed also moved. It was quick and not too strong. I immediately realized this was an earthquake, this time on the northern border," she said.
Inbar Meller from the central city of Ra'anana said that "this time I really felt the ground move and my legs were shaking. I instantly realized this was an earthquake.
Meller said she believes that buildings in Israel are not suited for recurring shocks and that they should be strengthened to prevent a disaster.
Earlier on Wednesday, a 3.3-magnitude earthquake jolted the Jewish state. Its epicenter was located about 20 kilometers (12 miles) southeast of the West Bank city of Ariel.
Another 3.5-magnitude tremor was felt across the country Tuesday night. Its epicenter was also reported 15 kilometers southeast of the West Bank city.
Fears of a major earthquake have been ramping up in Israel in recent days after two major shocks devastated parts of Türkiye and Syria this week, killing thousands. Both shocks were also felt in Israel.
Israel is located on the Great Rift Valley, which runs the entirety of the country's border with Jordan, and is considered "disaster-prone", raising grave concerns in the Jewish state.
Meanwhile, Jerusalem District Fire and Rescue Services postpone an earthquake rescue drill in Ma'ale Adumim due to inclement weather conditions.
As part of the exercise, rescuers were supposed to simulate the extraction of survivors from a collapsed building.
