SULAIMANI — Farmers in Duhok’s Kalakchi sub-district blocked the Erbil-Duhok road on Friday (July 3) to protest the refusal of Rovei Silo in Shekhan to take wheat deliveries.

NRT reporter Tayif Goran said that security forces quickly arrived on the scene and reopened the road.

“The silo has been closed for two days because two coronavirus cases were recorded there and it has not taken any wheat,” Goran reported.

The farmers demanded the silo reopen and accept deliveries.
