In the escalation of the "Southern transition". Gunmen destroy Qat and cause losses to farmers

Armed elements of the so-called Southern Transitional Council on Thursday destroyed a large amount of Qat crop, which belonged to farmers from Murais, Qattaba, and Ibb.

Eyewitnesses told Almasdar online that an armed group of the transitional elements cut the highway to the farmers who were heading for that quantity to the city of Aden, the interim capital (southern), to sell there.

They said that the militants forced the farmers to unload their cargo and began to destroy that amount, which is estimated to be millions of riyals.

The incident came as part of the escalation announced by the southern transition on Wednesday, threatening a "popular revolt" against the government to protest the collapse of the local currency and its arrival at the lowest point of collapse, with the price of one dollar to 640 riyals.

This aggressive behavior provoked the indignation of the population and the Qat farmers and called on the authorities to put an end to it.
