Syrian interim govt warns of crisis if SDF opened channel in Euphrates
Date: 2017-04-02 19:03
The Syrian interim government published a report about the dangers which might result if PKK-affiliated Syria Democratic Forces (SDF) opened a channel on the river of Bleikh from the Euphrates Dam in Raqqa.
The report depended on a study conducted by experts and technicians in the council of Raqqa. It said that that opening the channel on the river of Bleikh would only reduce 10% of the pressure in the Euphrates Dam. It would also drown 95 of the farmland, because many of the water channels in the area were not completed.
The report added that if SDF took that step, 150.000 acres might be damaged for many years to come.
Meanwhile, sources told Orient Net that SDF prevented technicians from solving the problems in the control panel of the Euphrates Dam.
The council of al-Raqqa said that most Syrians who fled the city towards the north had no links with ISIS. They only wanted to leave to safety amid the news of the Dam’s collapse.
The council also said that the UN organizations and humanitarian NGOs did not offer something significant to this major crisis of exodus as their work was surrounded by abuses and denial of access.
It is worthy to remind that SIS terrorists called upon civilians last week to immediately leave the city of al-Raqqa following the news about the imminent collapse of the Euphrates Dam in al-Tabqa. ISIS terrorists said that the reason of the collapse was the US-led coalition airstrikes on the vital institution.
