If you want to know what the Saudis or Persians are doing, read their press. Haaretz probably doesn't have Saudi or Teheran bureaus. As to the devastation, imagine if it happened in any place that has buildings that predate modern earthquake standards. Imagine if your own government was largely killed off and police and fire services, too. And several schools collapsed with the children and teachers inside.

Once the Seabees or Redhorse arrives, maybe they can expand the airport from a single runway and the road from what is left of that too.
