17 people died and nine others have gone missing due to floods as a result of rainfall in Jaafarih district of Rimah province in the last two days.

The governor of Rimah, Faris al-Habbari, confirmed that the heavy rains on the province also caused damage many houses, as well as public and private property.

He pointed out that the heavy rains washed off the agricultural terraces in the Bani Don and Shouboun area, which led to the destruction of coffee trees and other agricultural products.

Additionally, the rains caused cutting off the main roads in the various districts of Rimah province, which led to obstruction of traffic and the entry of the necessary and basic needs of food and accommodation for citizens in the province center.
