Turkey, situated on major seismic fault lines, is regularly hit by earthquakes. The Aegean coast has witnessed several quakes above 5-magnitude since the start of the year.
In July, two foreigners died and more than 100 people were injured on the Greek island of Kos when an earthquake shook the popular Greek and Turkish holiday destinations in the Aegean Sea.
