First responders search through the rubble in Iran’s Kermanshah province following a 7.3-magnitude earthquake
The tremor hit the Iranian province of Kermanshah where an natural disaster killed 620 people in November, Iranian state TV said, adding that rescue teams had been dispatched to the region.
The epicentre, with a depth of 8km, was determined to be at 33.78 degrees latitude and 45.74 degrees longitude.
It was followed by a 5.4-magnitude tremor in the same region.
No casualty or damage has been reported by far.
On November 12, a 7.3-magnitude quake killed 620 people in Kermanshah and eight in Iraq.
It is unclear how much damage was inflicted by Thursday's quake as the epicenter hit one of the most vulnerable areas in Iran's Kurdish region. Earthquakes at magnitude 5 can cause considerable damage.
The area is in the sparsely populated and remote Zagros Mountains that divide Iraq and Iran and is home to many shallow faults, he said.
In Iraq, nine people were killed and 550 injured in the northern Kurdish region, according to the UN.
"It's ongoing activity there". The last deadly quake was in 2003, where a 6.6 magnitude natural disaster killed 26,000 people in the city of Bam.
Earlier on Thursday, the USGS said a magnitude 4.9 quake hit Iran's southern province of Kerman before dawn, while another 4.6 magnitude temblor struck on Wednesday night in Kermanshah province. Four people suffered minor injuries in Iran, state television reported.
Iran sits atop several fault lines and has been hit by a series of earthquakes in recent weeks. In 2003, a 6.6-magnitude quake flattened the historic city of Bam, killing 26,000 people.
