Abstract: The Maltese Islands are a key area in the Central Mediterranean for understanding the development of faulting and foreland reactions on the northern edge of the African plate. Convergent and lateral motions along the Afro-Eurasian plate boundary generated different and superimposed stress regimes in the sedimentary cover, which governed the fracture pattern and fault processes.
