IDLIB, Syria (AA) – At least 100 people have been killed and hundreds injured in Syria after a series of powerful earthquakes centered in southeastern Türkiye jolted the wider region early on Monday.

Strong tremors hit Idlib, Aleppo, Hama, Latakia, and Raqqa regions of Syria, the state-run SANA news agency reported.

At least 42 people have died and over 200 others are wounded in areas of Aleppo under the Bashar al-Assad regime’s control, the report said.

Dozens of buildings were also destroyed or damaged in opposition-held areas in northern Syria, where rescue teams are frantically searching for survivors.
