A 3.8 magnitude earthquake shook northern Israel.

The epicenter of the temblor, which struck late Sunday night, was in Tiberias and the Hula Valley region.

The quake was felt in the Golan Heights, the Galilee and further south, according to reports. No injuries or damage were reported.

It was the third earthquake to strike Israel since April. 

Parts of Israel, including the Hula Valley, the Sea of Galilee, the Jordan Valley, the Dead Sea, the Arava Desert and the Red Sea, lie on the north-to-south Syrian-African fault line.
