Short summary
A balanced cross section across the hypocentre of the 2017 Iran–Iraq Mw 7.3 earthquake is presented. The structural style of the area is characterised by inversion tectonics with partial decoupling between the basement and the 10 km thick sedimentary cover. The main shock is located along a low-dipping lateral ramp of the Mountain Front Fault. The balanced cross section indicates that the Mountain Front Fault is the only fault where an Mw 7.3 earthquake may occur.
