A 4.2 magnitude earthquake struck the northern Kinneret area on Friday, according to the Geophysical Institute of Israel, making it the second to rattle the area in less than a week. The quake was felt at 11:52 am, which was also said to rumble Tiberias and northern Nazareth. Benny Sho’an, a 64-year-old resident from Tiberias, said he was sitting on his balcony overlooking the Sea of Galilee when the earthquake struck.

It’s the third time that I have really felt the earthquake.” READ MORE
