Papua New Guinea hit by another quake

Papua New Guinea hit by another quake”

Another strong natural disaster has shaken a remote Papua New Guinea region that was badly damaged by a powerful quake last week.

Agriculture Secretary Emmanuel Piñol personally conveyed the President's condolences to Papua New Guinea Prime Minister Peter O'Neill, according to the DFA.

A quake of magnitude 7.5 struck the rugged highlands of the Papua New Guinea mainland on February 26, killing more than 100 people.

The State of Israel, through MASHAV, the Israeli agency for global development cooperation, has confirmed it stands ready to assist PNG in relief efforts being deployed in the highlands regions impacted by the recent 7.5 magnitude natural disaster. He provided no information about the number of missing.

Prime Minister O'Neill and Prime Minister Netanyahu enjoy a close relationship, strengthened during the historical visit by Prime Minister O'Neill to Israel in 2013. They also expressed anger over the lack of global news coverage, saying that the world doesn't care about their plight.

The Ring of Fire zone is in the Pacific Ocean where a large number of quakes and volcanic eruptions occur.

A 7.0 magnitude natural disaster has struck Papua New Guinea only a week after an even bigger quake and aftershocks claimed more than 100 lives. It was fairly shallow at a depth of 22.9 kilometers (14.3 miles).
