Watch … the accumulation of crops heralds a tragic catastrophe for Ahwaz farmers in the city of Sous (Shoush)
The Ahwazi Organization for the Defense of Human Rights obtained a video clip from the inside of Ahwaz showing the accumulation of agricultural crops in the Ahwaz city of Sous.
According to the video, farmers piled over the cucumber crop, which is one of the most important and widespread crops of vegetables, after the recession hit local markets.
According to the farmers in Ahwaz, the situation is worsening due to the high price of seeds, the inability of farmers to pay rents of agricultural lands, in addition to their inability to pay the loans that they have taken to cultivate their lands.
The Ahwazi Organization emphasized that the Iranian regime intentionally destroyed the agricultural sector in Ahwaz, intending to eliminate any attempt to advance the agricultural sector.
The organization urged the international community to carry out its legal and ethical duties and to intervene to compel the Iranian regime to find a clear mechanism for compensating farmers in line with the scale of the harm they are exposed to
