AMMAN — The Cabinet on Wednesday allocated JD120,225 to compensate farmers whose land had been damaged by the King Talal Dam overflow in February.

The money was allocated from the Finance Ministry’s 2019 fiscal emergency funds, due to the shortage of funds within the Jordan Valley Authority’s (JVA) budget, the Jordan News Agency, Petra, reported.

The decision was made with consideration to the JVA Law and the requests filed by the farmers in question, asking for compensation.
