Baghdad - Mawazine News
The commission of parliamentary services confirmed on Saturday that Turkey's filling of the Elissu dam cut water from Iraq by 70 percent, while noting that the water scarcity and its scarcity are now a threat to the Iraqis because of the lack of storage.
"The water scarcity and its scarcity have become a threat to theIraqis because of the lack of storage, which has reached more than 1,000 parts per million at the border," committee member Mohammed al-Masoudi said in a statement. Appropriate mechanisms and the use of groundwater and pumping it to the rivers in order to pressure Turkey to destroy the dam. "
"This is in cooperation with the Gulf states, because today Turkey is back again to show its pressure and fill the Alissu dam, which cuts 70 percent of Iraq's water. This causes large forms that the government must deal with as quickly as possible because its impact on agricultural land and Other uses are clear and concrete. "
"The State Department must move to prevent the dangers of the launch of the Alesso dam on Iraq and the threat of drought that threatens us," he said.
The Ministry of Water Resources announced that the Turkish government had begun filling the Alesso dam, which was built on the Tigris River.
"The Turkish side began to dictate the Elissu dam on the Tigris River," Hassan al-Janabi, minister of water resources, told a news conference. "There is an Iraqi agreement with the Turkish side on the share of water that is stored and quantities to be launched.
He added that "Iraq will meet with Turkish officials in November next in the city of Mosul to review the agreement and consider it according to new data."
In the past two days, the Tigris River has been severely under-watered, which worries citizens about the drought that is affecting their areas and agricultural crops.
Over the past two days, the dam's effects have begun to appear on the Tigris River in the capital Baghdad and the northern city of Mosul, significantly downstream, which has terrified citizens of drought that will hit their areas and crops.
Activists on the Facebook social networking site have seen pictures of citizens crossing the Tigris River on foot, referring to the size of the large drop in water levels, amid calls for federal and local governments to intervene to curb this significant decline and coordination with the Turkish side.
