SIGN UP FOR THE JTA DAILY BRIEFING

A mild earthquake shook Israel.

Tuesday’s tremor, measuring 4.2 on the Richter scale, struck the Dead Sea and was felt as far away as Jerusalem.

There were no reports of injuries or damage.

The Dead Sea valley runs along the Asia-Africa fault line, making for frequent earthquakes.
