Books – Youssef Afifi:
Dr. Jad Al-Qadi, head of the National Institute for Astronomical and Geophysical Research, said that predicting earthquakes is not at all in science, but it is the diligence of a Dutch researcher only.
Al-Qadi explained in a press conference this afternoon, Wednesday, through the “Zoom” filter, that the attempt to link astronomical phenomena with seismic activity is still too early to link this to these events, taking into account the study of all natural sciences and their integration, and the aim of studying them is to work to preserve human lives and sustainable development and decide The United Nations and its organs.
He referred to the Dutch researcher’s study on predicting earthquakes, explaining that his prediction may or may not coincide, and the prediction coincided with the occurrence of seismic activity, and this does not mean a prediction.
The head of the National Institute for Astronomical and Geophysical Research called for the necessity of following the general instructions of the institute, self-protection and safe evacuation to known places, wishing to protect lives and property.
The conference comes after days when the world witnessed a number of earthquakes, the most prominent of which were the earthquakes in Turkey and Syria, which left more than 8 thousand people dead.
Egypt was affected by the earthquake in Turkey, as the stations of the National Seismological Network monitored an earthquake 691 km north of the city of Rafah, with a magnitude of 7.8 on the Richter scale.
