A 4.9 magnitude earthquake struck 10 km south-east of Borazjan, Iran, at 2.20am GMT according to USGS.
Reports said the quake hit near a nuclear plant, but added that it was a “natural” event.
The world was shaken by the news of Iranian missiles hitting Iraqi bases housing US-led coalition personnel, and the crash of a Ukrainian passenger jet shortly after take-off from Tehran’s airport on Wednesday.
Its certainly been a busy few hours in Iran, regardless of whether or not either this event or the passenger plane crash were mere unfortunate coincidences occurring just hours after the Iranian leadership launched missiles as US military bases is irrelevant at this point – These events will still likely play a part in the events that are to follow.
We’ll keep you posted.
