To escape the high prices, Aden’s poor citizens began to be displaced from the province
Following the unprecedentedly high cost of living in the province governed by the coalition and its factions, dozens of poor families from Aden began to be displaced from the city in recent days to its countryside and the areas controlled by the National Salvation Government.

This coincides with the worst price increase Aden has ever seen as well as the continuous rise in food prices brought on by the collapse of the local currency’s exchange rate versus the dollar.
The province’s sorting and land transportation firms have seen dozens of Aden families displacement to the province’s periphery and the governorates of Sana’a, Taiz, and Hudaydah in an effort to escape the hardships of living in Aden and the high cost of living.
Several Aden residents awoke yesterday, Wednesday, to insane price hikes in foodstuffs, led by wheat prices, which would make citizens’ living conditions worse.
This coincides with the historically collapsed local currency in Aden and other regions governed by the Saudi-led coalition, as well as the worsening of its crises, notably the electrical crisis.
Residents of the “Dar Saad” district testified that a large number of city merchants increased the price of ground wheat to 45,000 riyals at the same time as the US dollar rose above 1,500 riyals in recent hours.
The residents expressed their inability to purchase wheat at such exorbitant prices and called for a general protest across Aden to denounce this price dose.
