Just over a week ago, temperatures reached an all-time high in Saudi Arabia. 

According to local news reports, the central and eastern parts of the kingdom witnessed record-breaking temperatures, reaching 53 degrees Celsius. 

The entire region has also been affected by the scorching heat, especially the world's hottest areas like South Iraq, Kuwait, Libya, and Algeria.
