After East Africa, millions of locusts have now invaded Middle East countries like Yemen, Bahrain, Kuwait, Qatar and Saudi Arabia from the Horn of Africa.
People report biblical scenes as giant swarms of locusts are so thick they darken the sky.
The worst plague of locusts in 70 years is currently ravaging East Africa. In recent days, the insects spread to South Sudan, Uganda and Tanzania, after having devastated crops throughout Ethiopia, Kenya and Somalia.
The biblical plague has also engulfed Pakistan, India and is approaching the border to China, where thousands of starving ducks are waiting to eat them.
Meanwhile the Middle East countries report apocalyptic sceneries showing millions of insects darkening the sky as they invade Yemen, Bahrain, Kuwait, Qatar and Saudi Arabia from the Horn of Africa.
This shocking video below shows cars brought to standstill by a swarm of locusts that darken the sky in Bahrain.

The Plagues of Egypt
Meanwhile, Egypt will soon be hit as swarms are heading northbound along the Red Sea.
Rarely since the Exodus of Hebrew slaves from Egypt has the African continent seen locusts swarming throughout Ethiopia, Kenya, Somalia, South Sudan and Uganda.
Exodus 10:12-15 reads:
“And the Lord said to Moses, ‘Stretch out your hand over Egypt so that locusts swarm over the land and devour everything growing in the fields, everything left by the hail’.
“So Moses stretched out his staff over Egypt, and the Lord made an east wind blow across the land all that day and all that night.
“By morning the wind had brought the locusts; they invaded all Egypt and settled down in every area of the country in great numbers.
“Never before had there been such a plague of locusts, nor will there ever be again.
“They covered all the ground until it was black. They devoured all that was left after the hail – everything growing in the fields and the fruit on the trees.
“Nothing green remained on tree or plant in all the land of Egypt.“

IRAN IS UNDER WORLD TOTAL MARTIAL LAW?
Iran now has the highest coronavirus death toll outside of China, threatening the wider Middle East
3:52 PM EST
• Iran’s health ministry on Tuesday confirmed 15 deaths from the new coronavirus amid 95 cases in Iran, the most fatalities of any country outside of China.
• Cases of the virus have now exceeded 80,000 worldwide, with about 2,700 deaths, the vast majority in China.
• Amid accusations from within Iran of a government cover-up, it’s widely suspected that the number of cases and deaths are higher than officially reported.
DUBAI, United Arab Emirates — Iran’s health ministry on Tuesday confirmed 15 deaths from the coronavirus, the most fatalities of any country outside of China, where the deadly illness originated. Iran also said there are 95 current cases. And Iran’s deputy health minister, Iraj Harirchi, has tested positive for the virus after downplaying outbreak concerns just days prior.
Amid accusations from within Iran of a government cover-up, it’s widely suspected that the number of cases and deaths are higher than officially reported.
The majority of Iran’s cases have been linked to Qom, a major religious destination for Shiite pilgrims 85 miles south of Tehran, Iranian’s health ministry spokesman said on state television Tuesday. An official from Qom claimed Monday that 50 people had died in the city; Tehran quickly rejected the figure and denied hiding anything.
The virus’s rapid spread in Iran signals a greater risk to the wider region. And Iran’s links to the rest of the Middle East through travel by religious pilgrims and workers — as well as its dire economic situation — make it particularly ill-prepared to handle the intensifying outbreak, regional experts say.
“Iran is perhaps the first example of a high incidence of COVID-19 in a country with relatively weak public health infrastructure,” Hasnain Malik, Dubai-based managing director for frontier markets equity strategy at Tellimer, told CNBC. Iran has about 1.5 hospital beds per 1000 people, which is about half the level of the U.S. or Saudi Arabia, Malik said. “It is inevitable that we will see more examples across Asia and, perhaps, Africa.”
Regional repercussions: Middle East hubs, airlines at risk
Several new countries — Iraq, Kuwait, Afghanistan, Bahrain and Oman — reported their first coronavirus cases on Monday, which they say are all linked to Iran, raising fears of a greater outbreak spread to the whole region. Lebanon, the United Arab Emirates, Bahrain, and even Canada have reported cases they say stemmed from Iran.
