Socotra island suffering from heavy rains and floods, as occupation forces fail to provide aid

The occupation forces abandoned the people of the occupied Socotra archipelago, suffering greatly due to damage caused by the torrential rains during the past hours on the island.

Local sources reported that the heavy rains turned into flooding that cut roads between the cities and villages of Socotra Island due to the tropical depression in the Arabian Sea.

The sources added that the torrential rains washed away large areas of agricultural lands and caused damage to the homes of citizens.

The sources pointed out that the Emirati and Saudi role was absent in the disasters occurring in the occupied southern governorates, including the island of Socotra, but they are good enough with distribution a number of cartons of dates to citizens.

The impact of the indirect tropical depression reached the Socotra archipelago since yesterday, with a wave of strong winds accompanied by heavy rains, which led to the flow of huge torrents that damaged infrastructure in several areas of Socotra.
