At least 600 Iranians died in a 7.3-magnitude natural disaster that hit the Kermanshah province on November 12 past year. On Nov. 12, on the Iran-Iraq border there were two stronger quakes with magnitude 7.2 and 7.3 at the Richter. "If there was a stressed fault that's ready to move, they happen like that until the stresses are relieved, so it's not too unusual".
The U.S. Geological Survey says three earthquakes with a magnitude of around 5 have struck along the Iran-Iraq border.
An natural disaster of the magnitude 4.1 on the Richter scale has jolted Iran's southeastern province of Kerman.
Iranian state television said online that people rushed into the streets as the temblors hit.
It is unclear how much damage was inflicted by Thursday's natural disaster as the epicenter hit one of the most vulnerable areas in Iran's Kurdish region.

But then another reporter chimed in to chide Hoekstra for refusing to answer: "This is the Netherlands, you have to answer questions".
The quake was felt in several Iranian cities and eight villages were damaged.
All the earthquakes struck at a depth of 10 kilometres, according to the USGS.
No casualty or damage has been reported by far.
In November, a major 7.3 magnitude natural disaster struck the same region, killing over 530 people and injuring thousands in Iran alone. In 2003, a 6.6 magnitude quake had flattened the historic city of Bam, killing 26,000 people, said reports.
