Large Quake Reportedly Felt Across Middle East Region
TEHRAN, Iran — A major earthquake described as the strongest to hit Iran in more than half a century flatted homes and offices Tuesday near Iran's border with Pakistan, killing at least 40 people in the sparsely populated region and swaying buildings as far away as New Delhi and the skyscrapers in Dubai and Bahrain.

Its like 2 hours since the earthquake. But there are no aftershocks. For an earthquake with 7+ on the scale, there should have been 4 aftershocks atleast in the last 2 hrs.

Below is the least of latest 2.5+ activities after the iran earthquake. None on the iranian plate. None near the fault line too. Just a lone 7.8 earthquake. Was it a nuclear test ?

Funny you should mention it. The thought of it being a nuclear test actually did cross my mind when I posted it.
But I doubt that a nuclear test could be felt all across the middle east.

But the fact that there haven't been any significant aftershocks does seem a bit conspicuous.

Perhaps an underground nuclear test could have resulted in such an event?

Nuclear test in depth of 80+ km

Highly doubt it

The U.S. Geological Survey put the preliminary magnitude at 7.8 and at a depth of 15.2 kilometers (nine miles)

Just saying...

Thanks, just saw this.
Not impossible, but still huge depth to dig for a nuclear test.

It is quite deep but this is a conspiracy site isn't it ;-)

Big week for earthquakes. What's next?

Condolences to the iranian and pakistan victims' families, and may all help be rendered to them, to rescue as many as possible.

It was fortunate that the area is sparesly populated or more lives would have been lost.

May the persian apostate infidel leader Khameni take it as a divine warning on what he had done and is doing to our Creator's children living in Iran and outside. 2 major strikes in a row. Don't wait for the third one to repent, or it may be too late.
