Once again, an earthquake occurred along the East Anatolian Fault in southeastern Turkey. The moderate earthquake reached a magnitude of 5.2 on the Richter scale and had its hypocenter at a depth of 11 km. The epicenter was located about 10 km south-southwest of the town of Malatya. Local media report at least 23 injured individuals. The earthquake took place at 17:48:00 UTC, affecting a region that had already been severely impacted by the strong earthquake near Gaziantep. The infrastructure of Malatya had already been heavily damaged, which is why the recent moderate earthquake caused further harm and led to the injuries.
