Photos and videos of a blue flash appeared on the Web, which appeared in the sky before a new earthquake on the border of Turkey and Syria, which occurred on the evening of February 20.
In the video, you can see a blue glow, followed by tremors. It is noted that this phenomenon was observed by residents of Syrian Latakia and the border regions of Turkey.
Some netizens began to speculate that the earthquakes could have been triggered by a climate weapon deployed by a Western country, such as the United States. The “culprit” of earthquakes is called the HAARP project, located in Alaska.
In particular, the Turkish edition dikGAZETE pronounces this idea. The author of the material recalled that on January 27, 2023, the American Embassy in Turkey issued a warning about the insecurity of being in the country.
The director of the Higher Institute of Seismic Research at the University of Damascus, Hala Hasan, could not explain the appearance of the blue glow, but noted that before the tremors, the electric and magnetic fields of the atmosphere change.
On Monday, the Turkish Disaster Relief Service reported two earthquakes in Hatay Province, three minutes apart, of magnitude 6.4 and 5.8, followed by dozens of aftershocks. According to the latest data, 4 people died, 213 were injured. The residents of a number of Syrian provinces also felt the earthquake.
The February 6 earthquake claimed the lives of almost 45,000 people in Turkey and Sriya – the vast majority of them in Turkey, where more than a million and a half people are in temporary shelters. Since then, Turkish authorities have recorded more than 6,000 aftershocks.
Earlier, Sediq Afghan said that the recent earthquakes in Turkey were caused artificially.
