This report by the Yemeni Ministry of Agriculture and Irrigation provides a preliminary assessment of the damages to the agriculture sector caused by the ongoing Saudi-US aggression. Doing so it gives a harrowing view of the scale of the destruction visited upon the country:
"The systematic and ongoing Saudi-USA war launched against Yemen since March 26, 2015 under the pretence of re-establishing legitimacy was no more than a war against the Yemeni citizens and their sources of living in an attempt to subject and humiliate them. A stark example of their implicit intentions is their targeting of the agricultural sector with the most deadly weapons to both human beings and the environment. The air-bombardment of grain and vegetable markets, export centres, poultry farms, plant nurseries, grain silos, refrigerating facilities, seed- and seedling-distributing centres, agricultural accessories factories, roads, and greenhouses is a violation of regional and UN conventions, of neighbourly relations, of the ties of blood and history, and the teachings of Islam."
On the Global Hasankeyf Action Day in Hasankeyf and several cities hundreds of people demonstrated against the expected destruction of the town through the Ilisu Dam on the Tigris and for Hasankeyf.
The biggest action was done in the 12.000 years old town of Hasankeyf at the Tigris River in Turkish Kurdistan today. Around 400 people gathered in the centre of Hasankeyf, which is threatened by the Ilisu Dam, and blocked the central intersection. Other demonstrations took place in Baghdad, Istanbul, and Hamburg as well as other locations.
