It is certain that an earthquake at least as powerful as the one that occurred in Haiti two weeks ago will hit Israel, according to an expert speaking Tuesday at the Knesset.
The meeting was held to discuss the strengthening of Israel's infrastructure to withstand a Haiti-sized quake.
Chairman of the Steering Committee, representing the Infrastructure Ministry, Dr. Avi Shapira, said that "what is killing these people are the buildings. I have serious reservations about the term 'natural disaster.' It is the buildings that turned into death traps."
