This is not a total surprise, I have posted many times about the tectonic plates in this area.
There are many factors that could come into play here. Many people do not seem to realize that Syria itself has a total of five volcanos. The Golan Heights itself is a volcano. It stands 1197 meters high and last erupted during the Holcene era. Al Safa stands 979 meters high and last erupted in 1850 AD. Jabal ad Druze stands 1803 meters high and last erupted during the holocene era. Sharat Kovakab stands 534 meters high and last erupted also during the holocene era. Shahba stands 845 meters high and last erupted in 2670 BC. A smaller unnamed volcano erupted in 1222 AD. Arabian_Plate They are now drilling for gas on the Golan Heights.
There is also a stratovolcano, strombolian type in the Southern Red Sea region of Eritrea and it erupted about a year ago to a small degree. It is massive.
There is more, much more. The entire area is composed of three tectonic plates much like the area around Japan where we saw the Fukushima tidal wave wreck a nuclear power plant and it is most likely only the beginning. The Arabian, African and Indian plates having been moving northward for a very long time where they collide with the Eurasian plate forming the Pyrenees. They cross into southern Europe, Iran, the Himalayas and Southeast Asia.
But hey lets face it, we are on a planet run by a bunch of crazy satanists, about the best we can do is hope for a pole shift.
