Harsh weather | Rise in fruit and vegetables crops’ prices on the coastline and south Syria due to snowfall

The wave of frost and snowfall that hit large areas across Syria have damaged slots of land planted with fruits and vegetables grown in “green houses” and citrus trees in the Syrian coastline. The harsh weather also reduced the production of the fruits and vegetables in south Syria by 50 percent.

Meanwhile, reliable sources have told SOHR that waves of snow and frost have damaged some vegetables planted in provinces of Daraa and Al-Suwaidaa and the vicinity of Damascus while markets suffer lack of tomato, paper, eggplant and other vegetables. The harsh weather also caused rise of prices of some vegetables and fruits further burdening the people in areas under the control of the regime, who have been already experiencing severe living conditions.

It is worth noting that areas under control of the regime and other forces suffer difficult humanitarian conditions amid lowering temperature, increasing prices and shortage of heating materials.
