Strong destructive in SE Turkey / N Syria, magnitude Mw~7.8.

Mechanism compatible with left-lateral strike-slip on the southern part of East Anatolian Fault system. Aftershock zone extends for ~250km along that fault system. Complex source time function may suggest rupture on several fault branches. The left-lateral East Anatolian Fault system bounds the Anatolian tectonic microplate to the east.
