A small earthquake hit Lebanon Wednesday afternoon, naharnet reports. The 4.0 on the Richter scale quake was felt in Beirut, Sidon, parts of the north, and a few other areas. Some Lebanese noticed the shakes, as evident in social media. In true Lebanese fashion, many poked fun at the blast.

And the top comment on the naharnet article claimed the quake was a joint Zionist-Wahabi attack on the Shia.

Naharnet reported that the government-run Bhannes National Center for Geophysical Research says Lebanon suffers from 600 small earthquakes yearly. The worst one in modern times was the 1956 Chim earthquake, which killed 136 people.
