Middle East Is Being Battered By Huge Locust Plague Proving 2020 Isn't Done Yet

Middle East Is Being Battered By Huge Locust Plague Proving 2020 Isn't Done YetA humungous locust infestation has started to rip through parts of the Middle East.
First, there were devastating bushfires in Australia, then World War Three was close to breaking out, then Kobe Bryant died in a horrible plane crash and then a massive pandemic hit.
Surely 2020 can't get any worse, right? Well, try telling that to Iran, who is in the middle of one of the worst locust infestations in decades.
The problem has become so dire that the military has been called in to help fight off the flying beasts.




Mohammad Reza Mir, a spokesman for the ministry's Plant Protection Organization, said the locusts are estimated to have eaten through 200,000 hectares of orchards and farmland.
If nothing is done to curtail their migration, there are fears as much as a million hectares of land will be decimated by the swarm.
