This is a Solifigue. It’s not a true spider or true scorpion but sometimes referred to as a “windscorpion “. It is in the class Arachnida but it’s Order is Solifigue and the most common family in your area are Ermobatidae (straight faced wind scorpions). They aren’t medically significant to humans but can deliver a painful bite.
