The labor-intensive schemes for the Tarim area of Wadi Hadhramaut, will also target improving the infrastructure of the region.

A KSRelief team also visited farmers in Qalaat Al-Madiq, a town in the Hama governorate of Syria, to give instructions on the use of agricultural pesticides recently delivered to the area.
So far 1,000 local families and displaced people with farming backgrounds have been given help to revitalize agricultural and livestock activities damaged by the war in Syria.

Houthis have smuggled various weapons from Iran: Arab coalition

RIYADH: The Arab coalition supporting Yemen’s internationally recognized government said on Monday that the Houthi militia has received various types of weapons smuggled from Iran.
Speaking at a weekly press conference in Riyadh, spokesperson Col. Turki Al-Maliki said the militia has suffered heavy losses and as a result they have been targeting civilians and civilian installations.
Col. Al-Maliki also said that the Houthis are digging trenches and building fortifications in Hodeidah in violation of the Stockholm agreement.
He said that the Iran-backed militia is trying to provoke the coalition, but “we will apply international law.”
He added that the coalition has started disbursing voluntary assistance to those affected by accidents in Yemen and the coalition has already compensated 116 people affected.
