(ANSA) - ROME, 07 FEB - The new fault that was activated yesterday on the border between Turkey and Syria has caused a displacement of the ground of up to 10 meters.
Seismologist Alessandro Amato from the National Institute of Geophysics and Volcanology (Ingv) told ANSA.
"A transcurrent type movement has taken place", i.e. the ground has slipped horizontally along the two edges of the fault, "with an orientation to the left, in the direction of the Aegean", Amato said again.
"On some parts of the fault, a fault displacement of up to 10 meters has been calculated."
