     The General Authority for Meteorology and Seismic Monitoring confirmed today, Friday, that Iraq is close to the line of earthquakes, while indicating the mobilization of efforts to monitor and record earthquakes.

     The director of meteorological media, Amer Al-Jabri, told the Iraqi News Agency (INA): "The earthquake in Iraq cannot be predicted, due to the movement of the earth's crust and collision of plates."

     He added that "the General Authority has been mobilizing its technical efforts for a long time to monitor and record earthquakes, which have increased in recent times, as a result of the country's proximity to the seismic line, especially in areas close to Iran," noting that "the authority has taken precautionary measures to maintain safety for citizens and keep them away from dangerous places that are prone to earthquakes.
