[size=52]British Center: Iraq loses 40% of its water due to Turkey and Iran[/size]

[size=45]Translated by Hamid Ahmed[/size]
[size=45]A British research center reported that the policies of Turkey and Iran led to Iraq losing 40% of its water, calling on the government to develop a program and protect generations from the attacks of neighboring countries, stressing that the people are accustomed to waste and not implement the policy of rationalization.[/size]
[size=45]And the British Gatham Howsh Center stated in a report translated by (Al-Mada), that "the administration of the current Iraqi government should put among its priorities the treatment of the water crisis, which the previous successive governments had greatly exacerbated." The report continued, "The Middle East contains approximately 6.3% of the world's population, but only 1.4% of them enjoy clean drinking water."[/size]
[size=45]He pointed out, "Only three Arab countries in 1955 suffered from water scarcity, but this number has risen to 11 countries at the present time."[/size]
[size=45]The report pointed out that "seven scientists predict that other countries in the region will suffer from a water crisis by 2025."[/size]
[size=45]He stressed, "Iraq was in a good position until 1970, with regard to water due to the abundance of the Tigris and Euphrates rivers."[/size]
[size=45]The report continues, "After that year, the country lost nearly 40% of its water levels, and one of the reasons for this is due to the policies of neighboring countries towards Iraq, especially Turkey."[/size]
[size=45]He believes, "The high temperatures and low rainfall equipment had a significant impact on Iraq's water reserves; About 8 billion cubic meters of water was evaporated. The report stated, "The main cause of water scarcity in Iraq was Turkey's cutting off the flow of the Tigris and Euphrates waters to the country."[/size]
[size=45]He stressed, "The Tigris River originates in southeastern Turkey and is 1,718 km long, and it passes through Syrian territory for a distance of 50 km and then enters Iraqi territory at the village of Fishkhabour." The report noted that “the Tigris branch from five tributaries flowing in Iraq, namely the Khabur River, the Great Zab, the Little Zab, the Azim River, and the Diyala River. The Tigris River meets the Euphrates River in Qurna to form the Shatt al-Arab.” And the report added, “Water scarcity had a significant impact on Iraq,” and quotes the Minister of Water Resources, Mahdi Rashid Al-Hamdani, as saying that “the levels of water flow of the Tigris and Euphrates rivers coming from Turkey have been reduced by half by 50%, and that the water levels of the Zab River In Kirkuk, it decreased by 70%, while the water levels of the tributaries branching from it that reach the Darbandikhan Dam have reached zero.”[/size]
[size=45]The report added, "Al-Hamdani indicated that Iran has also changed the course of many important rivers that flow towards Iraq, such as the Sirwan River, which Iran has tried many times to drain."[/size]
[size=45]He continued, "The Minister of Water Resources also mentioned that Iran also changed the course of border rivers with Iraq, such as the Diyala River and Khanaqin, to flow into Iranian territory instead of Iraq."[/size]
[size=45]The report estimated that “the levels of the water levels of the Euphrates River entering Iraqi territory through Turkey and Syria amounted in 1933 to 30 billion cubic meters.”[/size]
[size=45]At the same time, he revealed, "the water entering Iraq from the Euphrates has decreased to 9.3 billion cubic meters during the current year."[/size]
[size=45]The report stated, "The construction of the Ilisu Dam in Turkey caused a decrease in the flow of the Tigris River from 20.5 billion cubic meters to 9.7 billion cubic meters." He pointed out, "Iran, on the other hand, has drained five Iraqi rivers, namely, Kangan, Kalar Badra, Kanjilat, Karkh and Khobin, all of which are currently dry."[/size]
[size=45]The report stated that “the lack of rainfall and other external factors, including terrorism, have not only affected the Iraqi rivers, but also the drinking water.”[/size]
[size=45]He spoke about "ISIS terrorist organization targeting desalination plants and projects, water purification and dams." The report stated, "The terrorist organization destroyed the Fallujah Dam in 2014, which caused the drying up of many agricultural lands and irrigation projects in the areas of Saqlawiyah, Abu Ghraib, Radwaniyah, Latifiyah and Alexandria." The report recommended that the Iraqi government “set a program to address the water problem and identify appropriate solutions, by ensuring that future generations do not become victims of Turkey and Iran’s attacks on their water resources.”[/size]
[size=45]He advised “the need to spread a culture of rationalizing water consumption among the Iraqi people, and to teach children in schools about this culture, as well as through newspapers, media and places of worship.” The report identified major factors that worsen the water scarcity in Iraq, the first of which is “Turkey and Iran cutting off the rivers entering Iraq from the lands of Kurdistan and central Iraq.”[/size]
[size=45]The report continued, "The second factor is the impact of the scarcity of rainfall and climate change related to rising temperatures and a high rate of water evaporation." He continues, "The last factor is wars and violence, especially committed by ISIS, which destroyed water facilities, with the Iraqi government's lack of a modern policy to address the water crisis."[/size]
[size=45]The report concluded, "The Iraqi people are also accustomed to wasting water and not taking into account the rationalization of consumption."[/size]
