PLAGUE OF LOCUSTS hits Mecca, the Islamic holy city!!

OK, I had to check several sources on this one, and it looks like it’s accurate: a PLAGUE of LOCUSTS has hit Mecca, one of the two holiest cities in Islam.

From the Times of Israel:

A massive swarm of locusts plagued Mecca, Saudi Arabia, earlier this week, prompting authorities at Islam’s holiest site to launch a cleaning operation to remove them.

Videos posted to social media showed the insects swarming around cleaners and worshipers in the city’s Grand Mosque, where millions of Muslim pilgrims congregate every year.

“Specialized teams have been directed to work in the fight to eliminate these insects,” authorities in Mecca said, according to the Al-Araby Al-Jadeed news site.

“We have harnessed all efforts available to speed up the eradication of the insects in the interest of the safety and comfort of guests of God’s house,” the authorities said.

Maybe y’all should look into converting out of Islam to get rid of that plague. Maybe?

Here’s a video of the scene in Mecca:
