Earlier today, Nepal was rocked by another powerful earthquake, just weeks after the initial deadly disaster, that killed more than 8,000 people.

Today’s 7.3 magnitude quake struck an isolated Himalayan area between the capital, Kathmandu, and Mount Everest, near the Chinese border, the US Geological Survey said.

Netanyahu spoke with Nepal’s ambassador to Israel to offer additional aid following  another the second earthquake. 

At least 19 people were killed and nearly 1000 injured in the latest earthquake to hit the himalayan country.
