Turkey Earthquake Caused by US-Backed HAARP Attack? Conspiracy Theories as Strange Blue Lightening Seen in Skies Seconds Before First Earthquake

Speculations about HAARP triggering the massive earthquakes in Turkey and Syria have surfaced on social media. The 7.8-magnitude quake earthquakes have left more than 3,800 people dead and thousands injured.


Lightening Seen in Sky Before Earthquake

An acronym for High Frequency Active Auroral Research Program, the research project was handled by the US Air Force, and Navy from 1990 to 2014 before being handed over to University of Alaska Fairbanks in 2015.

As per the University HAARP is a research program designed to analyze the ionosphere, a portion of the upper atmosphere that stretches from about 53 miles (85 kilometers) above the surface of the Earth to 370 miles (600 kilometers) up. HAARP Research Station is located at Gakona, in Alaska.

Space reported that in December, last year, an experiment was conducted which involved shooting powerful pulses of long radio waves at an asteroid that was passing Earth at a distance double that of the moon at the time.

The flashes of lightening in the sky seconds before the Turkey earthquake left many wondering if it was caused by HAARP. It isn't the first time HAARP has been accused of causing an earthquake. NBC News reported that in 2010, Venezuelan leader Huge Chavez claimed that HAARP or a program like it triggered the Haiti earthquake.

Social Media Speculates the Cause for Earthquake

Social media was rife with conspiracy theories surrounding the involvement of the US-backed research causing the three earthquakes in Turkey and Syria.

Lightning and earthquakes. US and other embassies warned of terrorist attacks prior. Turkey blocking Finland and Sweden from NATO. Do the math.

"Turkey threatens to leave NATO and votes against the inclusion of Sweden in NATO and now, all of a sudden, Turkey is hit with devastating earthquakes. How convenient. How terribly convenient. cough HAARP cough," tweeted a user.

Was the Man-Made Earthquake Via HAARP Technology?
that hit Turkey siriya Lebanon? Was it a miniature or a manmade disaster to make Turkey succumb to its knees, owing to the pivotal role Turkey has started to play recently vis-a-vis the ‘annexation plan’ of the West Bank by 🇮🇱

"Tectonic weaponry, HAARP or Project Thor? Seems the filthy Rothschild bankers are seething that Turkey is trading with Russia. Plus, withdrawal from NATO," wrote another user.

"When seen on the news about the earthquakes in Turkey i thought i wonder if HAARP did that,and it can," expressed a user.

"I'm thinking about Turkey. They were trying to organize a peace treaty between Russia and Ukraine. I guess the globalists didn't like that. Now I wonder about the 3 lg 7+ earthquakes. Ya know they may not be natural, like Fukushima. HAARP," wrote a user.


On Thursday's "Wake Up America," the Iranian regime has unveiled a new ballistic missile with the words "Death to Israel" written on it in Hebrew, as well as a new underground air base.

People in Turkey saw this strange light in the sky right before the earthquake.

Birds acting weird just before the earthquake in Turkey.

Turkey attacked with HAARP? Look at this cloud just before the earthquake

Playing God: HAARP Weather Modification

A slit 30 meters deep after the earthquake occurred in Hatay

After the earthquakes based in Kahramanmaraş, a slit was formed in Tepehan Village, which is connected to Hatay Altınözü district, dividing the 35-acre olive garden in half.

The pit, which is about 30 meters deep and 200 meters wide, made the citizens nervous.

Some citizens said that they heard a big explosion during the earthquake and saw green light in the same area.

"I heard the explosion sound"

Aziz Gündüz, one of the residents of the region who told the incident, “ It was a huge explosion, I did not see it, but I heard the sound. Unfortunately, when I looked this way in the morning, we saw such a ruin on this side. This side scanned, straight. Now the scoop doesn't even come down. I don't know what it is. ” said.

"There are those who see it explode"

Another resident of the region named Abdullah Temelkan,“ The explosion is out of here. There is no such thing that has collapsed. There are those who see it explode. I could not believe. Green fumes came out of here. ” he spoke.

Thank you.

The title of my political statement:

“People Had to Die, and It’s Not Over Yet”

Dear fellow senators,

For three years we have been experiencing a real campaign of mass killing worldwide, either through alleged pandemics and the imminent need to inject untested vaccines that kill people, or through wars that reduce the world’s population, but rearranges international politics, realigns power […]

We have lived to witness the production of earthquakes on command, which is actually an attack on Turkey by the greatest of the world who totally disliked being set up by Recep Tayyip Erdoğan, the President of Turkey.

Moreover, his position of neutrality and mediator in the Ukrainian-Russian war deeply disturbed them, especially since Turkey is the second great power from a military point of view within NATO.

His position to block Sweden’s accession to NATO, his speech in Davos, as well as the gesture of leaving in the middle of the press conference defying Schwab, did not remain without an echo in the cold world of leaders of the world.

But no one thought that people would have to die — so many people and in such a terrible way.

And it’s just a warning because it wasn’t the most populated area of Turkey.

One hundred fifty (150) after shocks of a devastating earthquake, the second larger than the first, without the existence of an […] — the area being artificially stimulated, geological weapons having existed for a very long time, being used so far without causing too many casualties, probably for experiments.

Now it has been put into practice.

If we look carefully at the map of Turkey, we will see that it is furrowed by gas and oil pipelines, this being actually one of the goals.

But 10 seconds before the occurrence of the so-called earthquake, the Turks closed these pipelines.

In addition, 24 hours before the earthquake, 10 countries withdrew their ambassadors from Turkey.

Five days before its occurrence, the Romainian Ministry of Foreign Affairs issued a travel warning for Romanian citizens in Turkey, although there was no danger, as did other countries.

By killing people, they served their interests.

Magnitude 6.4 earthquake rocks Turkey-Syria border

A magnitude 6.4 earthquake hit the border region between Turkey and Syria on Monday, just two weeks after two powerful earthquakes struck the area and killed more than 46,000 people in both countries.

The Turkish disaster management agency Afad announced that the quake hit at 20:04 local time, with the epicentre located in the Defne district of Hatay province, the same region that was struck earlier this month.

Breaking news Two earthquakes of 6.4 and 5.8 size, felt in Hatay and the surrounding provinces, occurred

According to the last minute report, AFAD and Kandilli Observatory announced that a 6.4-magnitude earthquake occurred in the district of Defne in Hatay. Three minutes after the earthquake that occurred at 20.04, at 20.07, another 5.8 magnitude earthquake occurred in Hatay, Samandag.

According to the statement of the Kandilli Observatory, at 20.04, a 6.4-magnitude earthquake occurred based in Hatay, Samandag. Aftershocks continue in the region.

Mehmet Akif Ersoy, Faruk Aksoy and Fevzi Çakır, who made the Habertürk TV live broadcast from Hatay during the earthquake, also felt the earthquake and conveyed what happened in Hatay.

With the effect of the earthquake, dust cloud occurred in the wreckage area in Hatay and ambulance sounds were heard. According to the transfers, some buildings were destroyed.

AFAD reported that in 20.07, another 5.8 magnitude earthquake was experienced based in Hatay, Samandag.

An earthquake occurred in Hatay Samandag, which was 3.9 in size at 20.13 in the region.

Millions of caterpillars invade Shirnak, southeastern Turkey threatening crops, gardens and homes

Millions of caterpillars appear out of nowhere, threatening farmland. They are found crawling along roadsides, in settlements and in fields, eating everything on their path…

Farmers are sounding the alarm. The massive amount of caterpillars is destroying properties, gardens and crops, which will lead to an increase in food prices. This is a situation to avoid after the deadly earthquakes.

Farmers have no insecticide left to protect their crops and fields. And the wave of caterpillar is non-stop. They reappear out-of-nowehere after being sprayed…

Children are afraid to go to school. Parents don’t know if the caterpillars have diseases and are also scared.

It is believed that this may be due to the large earthquake that occurred over the last 3 weeks in Turkey.

An investigation has been started by a team of the Şırnak Provincial Directorate of Agriculture and Forestry.

BREAKING: Saudi Arabia and Iran announce restoration of ties in deal brokered by Xi Jinping

A joint, trilateral statement from the Saudi Arabian Ministry of Foreign Affairs was released on Friday, detailing the restoration of ties between the oil-rich kingdom and the nation of Iran. That deal was negotiated by China's third-term president Xi Jinping.

The statement was signed by Ali Shamkhani of Iran, Musaad bin Mohammed Al-Aiban for Saudi Arabia, and Wang Yi for the CCP.

The two nations have been rivals for years, and have not had diplomatic relations since 2016. The cutting of ties came after Iranian protesters stormed Saudi Arabia's embassy in Taiwan, Axios notes.

The two were also on opposing sides of the Yemeni civil war. An attack on Saudi Arabian oil facilities was attributed to Iran by the US, which also didn't help tensions between the two countries.

The deal was brokered in Beijing where all three signers met. Ambassadors are expected to be exchanged over the next two months, along with the reopening of embassies.

While this move should generate greater stability in the Middle East, the White House was subdued in their response. A spokesperson for the Biden administration said: "Generally speaking, we welcome any efforts to help end the war in Yemen and de-escalate tensions in the Middle East region. De-escalation and diplomacy together with deterrence are key pillars of the policy President Biden outlined during his visit to the region last year."

HAARP Superweapon Still Being Used For Geowarfare, Romanian General Claims

HAARP possibly caused killer quake in Turkey, Syria

Geo-engineering expert Gen. Emil Strainu discussed the dangers of HAARP to members of the media Serbia. He dubbed it as the “weapon of the apocalypse,” telling journalist Dragan Vujicic that it can potentially be used for economic warfare, climate change and population control. However, HAARP had benign roots as a scientific endeavor for studying the ionosphere’s properties and behavior.

The HAARP system has been in operation since 1993,” Strainu said. “The number of antennas and transmitters has increased year by year, with more than 180 antennas and main generators in use. Today, HAARP has the highest power in its history and can carry out remote missions anywhere in the world.”

Strainu explained three main directions in geoengineering. First is carbon geoengineering, which aims to remove carbon dioxide from the atmosphere. Second is solar geoengineering, which seeks to modify the amount of solar radiation absorbed and released into the Earth’s atmosphere.

Military geoengineering, the third direction, makes use of environmental modification technologies for military purposes in all three environments – land, sea and air. According to Strianu, the current “climate change” issue appears to be caused by such geoengineering projects secretly carried out for decades.

The most powerful HAARP installation is located in Gakona, Alaska which closed down in 2014 and went under the purview of the University of Alaska Fairbanks (UAF) two years later in 2016. However, Strianu pointed out that this was a cover by the U.S. Army and the Central Intelligence Agency to continue HAARP operations there.

HAARP possibly caused killer quake in Turkey, Syria

Strianu also recounted being at the UAF HAARP facility and discovering how the weapon is used. He shared that some of its applications include causing explosions similar to those caused by nuclear bombs; modifying the environment and creating hurricanes, tornadoes, waterspouts and tsunamis in areas where they do not normally occur. (Related: US military possesses advanced technology that can cause typhoons, earthquakes, floods and droughts.)

The weapon can also generate earthquakes and volcanic eruptions by stimulating areas prone to such phenomena. It can also alter brainwaves and control people’s thinking.

Given the general’s revelations, many on social media are pointing their fingers at HAARP for causing the massive February 2022 earthquake that hit Turkey and Syria. The disaster left at least 54,387 dead.

Strianu is not alone in believing the existence of a geoengineering weapon. His fellow Romanian, Sen. Diana Iovanovici Sosoaca, argued during a speech at the Romanian Parliament that the earthquake in Turkey may have been the result of a geoweapon the globalists deployed against Ankara. According to the legislator, Turkish President Recep Tayyip Erdogan’s defiance of the globalists did not sit well with the latter.

Sosoaca pointed to “150 aftershocks of [the] devastating earthquake, the second larger than the first” as proof of the tremors being artificial in nature.” She added that geoweapons “have existed for a very long time” and have been “used so far without causing too many casualties, probably for experiments.”

“Now it has been put into practice,” the senator remarked. “But no one thought that people would have to die — so many people and in such a terrible way.”

Numerous social media posts have claimed that HAARP is used to engineer storms and heat waves. Some have even suggested its use as a tool to hype climate alarmism and make people more receptive to climate lockdowns. Worse, HAARP has been claimed to be a tool for depopulating the world.

US retaliates with airstrikes in Syria after Iranian drone strike kills US contractor

The U.S. military carried out several precision airstrikes in Syria on Thursday, reportedly killing eight Iranians, in retaliation for a drone strike Iranian forces conducted earlier in the day on a coalition base that killed one American.

The Defense Department said Iran’s Islamic Revolutionary Guards Corps crashed a UAV into a building near Hasakah in northeast Syria at approximately 1:38 p.m. local time, leaving one U.S. contractor dead. The attack also wounded five U.S. service members and another U.S. contractor.

According to the Syrian Observatory for Human Rights, an opposition war monitor, two of the American strikes killed at least eight Iranian fighters.

A U.S. airstrike at an arms depot in Harabesh, in the eastern city of Deir el-Zour left six Iranian-backed fighters dead. A second U.S. bombing at a post near the town of Mayadeen killed another two fighters, according to the Observatory, whose reporting relies on local Syrian contacts.

U.S. intelligence assessed the UAV that crashed into a coalition base, which killed the U.S. contractor, was of Iranian origin — so President Biden authorized the military to retaliate, the Pentagon said.

"At the direction of President Biden, I authorized U.S. Central Command forces to conduct precision airstrikes tonight in eastern Syria against facilities used by groups affiliated with Iran’s Islamic Revolutionary Guards Corps (IRGC)," said Secretary of Defense Lloyd J. Austin III. "The airstrikes were conducted in response to today’s attack as well as a series of recent attacks against Coalition forces in Syria by groups affiliated with the IRGC."

The Observatory reported another American strike on a military post near the town of Boukamal, near the border with Iraq. Their report has not been independently verified.

Three service members and the U.S. contractor who were wounded in the initial attack were medically evacuated to Coalition medical facilities in Iraq while the other two wounded service members were treated on-site.

"As President Biden has made clear, we will take all necessary measures to defend our people and will always respond at a time and place of our choosing," Secretary Austin continued. "No group will strike our troops with impunity."

He added: "Our thoughts are with the family and colleagues of the contractor who was killed and with those who were wounded in the attack earlier today."

General Michael Kurilla, the CENTCOM Commander, said the U.S. stands ready to retaliate against any such attacks on U.S. personnel.

"This evening, we responded to an attack on our forces that killed an American contractor and wounded our troops and another American contractor by striking facilities used by groups affiliated with Iran’s Islamic Revolutionary Guard Corps. This was another in a series of attacks on our troops and partner forces," Kurilla said.

Kurilla added: "We will always take all necessary measures to defend our people and will always respond at a time and place of our choosing. We are postured for scalable options in the face of any additional Iranian attacks."

"The thoughts and prayers of US Central Command are with the Family of our contractor killed and with our wounded servicemembers and contractor," the CENTCOM Commander also said.

And: "Our troops remain in Syria to ensure the enduring defeat of ISIS, which benefits the security and stability of not only Syria but the entire region."

The Pentagon said the U.S. took "proportionate and deliberate action" that limited the risk of escalation in its targeted response.

The U.S. has roughly 900 troops stationed in Syria.

Iranian-Backed Fighters RETALIATE Against U.S. for Air Strikes in Syria

Iran-backed fighters fired three missiles at a US military base in northeast Syria today after President Biden launched a series of retaliatory air strikes in response to a deadly Iranian suicide drone attack that killed an American contractor.

The Iran-backed groups targeted the US base at the Al-Omar oil field in Syria's northeast with a missile attack at around 11am on Friday morning.

Two missiles fell in the oil field, without causing damage, while the third landed on a civilian house nearby, the Syrian Observatory for Human Rights said. It was unclear whether the strikes had caused any casualties.

The militants launched the strikes just hours after President Biden ordered the U.S. Central Command forces to launch 'precision airstrikes' against facilities used by groups affiliated with Iran's Revolutionary Guard Corps, killing 11 pro-Iran fighters.

Syrian President Bashar al-Assad visited the United Arab Emirates (UAE) last week. It was Assad’s first visit to the Gulf country since the devastating earthquake that struck Turkey and Syria last month. The UAE’s president, Sheikh Mohammed bin Zayed Al Nahyan, greeted al-Assad and his wife Asma in the capital Abu Dhabi on Sunday, official news agency WAM said, before high-level meetings at the presidential palace. Abu Dhabi, which normalised relations with al-Assad’s internationally isolated government in 2018, has contributed to aid efforts in the aftermath of the February 6 earthquake that struck southeastern Turkey and northern Syria, killing tens of thousands. Meanwhile, Syria and Saudi Arabia have agreed to reopen their embassies after cutting diplomatic ties more than a decade ago, three sources with knowledge of the matter said, a step that would mark a leap forward in Damascus's return to the Arab fold.

Saudi TV mocks Biden & Harris in viral skit


A new report accuses the UK government of firing on civilians in Iraq in 2016 and 2017. The British government has said that it fought a “perfect” war against the Islamic State in Iraq. What they mean by “perfect” is that they protected ordinary citizens but the non-profit group Airwars objects to that claim. They say that the U.K. killed civilians in at least six air strikes in the Iraqi city of Mosul. At least 26 deaths were reported, including children. A spokesperson for the Ministry of Defense said that there “is no evidence” of this.
