Iran, April 19, 2019 - Six provinces in Iran are facing a massive locust attack crisis and locals are complaining of regime officials failing to take any measures. According to incoming reports, this latest development has led to the destruction of thousands of hectares of farmlands.
“Despite sending letters and requests to the Minister of Interior and the Crisis Management Organization, no budget has been allocated for this issue,” said Mohammad Reza Dargahi, head of the Grains Protection Organization. This proves yet again that the mullahs’ regime in Iran cares nothing about the Iranian people.
The provinces of Khuzestan, Bushehr, Fars, Hormozgan, south of Kerman and Sistan & Baluchistan – many already gripping with the ongoing flood crisis – are witnessing massive locust attacks.
“The country’s food security will be threatened if the crisis of desert locusts attacking our six southern provinces is not controlled. The 100 billion rial credit (around $2.4 million) has yet to be approved for this matter,” Dargahi added.
Knowing the mullahs’ regime will not provide any relief, Iranian opposition President Maryam Rajavi, head of the National Council of Resistance of Iran (NCRI), is calling on the international community to support the Iranian people in their time of need.
The mullahs have destroyed the environmental equilibrium, putting agriculture and ppl’s daily food staples at great risk. The mullahs will do nothing. UN Food & Agriculture Organization (FAO) must rush to help the farmers to spray their fields. #Iran— Maryam Rajavi (@Maryam_Rajavi) April 18, 2019
