A 7.3 magnitude earthquake has struck the northern border region between Iraq and Iran on Sunday evening, leaving dozens killed.
Death toll of the powerful border earthquake has risen to 100, with over 1,000 other people injured in Iran, reported RT citing Iranian emergency official.
Six other fatalities were reported on the Iraq side of the border, according to AFP.
At least 61 people were killed and more than 300 injured in Iran, according to Iran's news agency ISNA.
Another four fatalities are also reported from Iraq, according to BBC.
But the death toll in both nations is likely to rise as rescue operations are underway.
According to media reports, tremors were also felt in Turkey and Israel.
The quake was monitored outside the Iraqi city of Halabjah with an epicenter depth of 32.2 km, the US Geological Survey (USGS) said.
The USGS issued an orange alert in the area for "shaking-related fatalities and economic losses."
China Earthquake Networks Center (CENC) put the earthquake at magnitude 7.8 and at a depth of 20 km.
In 2003, a magnitude 6.6 earthquake flattened Iran's historic city of Bam, killing 26,000 people.
