America Pushing Northern Syria Towards Environmental Disaster


The United States of America illegally enabled a loyal Syrian group to enrich the most fertile areas, the most water-rich and oil-rich regions.

And the American intervention in Syria constituted a strong and impervious cover for the Syrian democratic forces and other groups revolving in its interests, enabled them to fully and reassert control over a vast area estimated at about a third of the country.

However, the major tragedy, which has become parallel to the problems that Syrian citizens suffer from as a result of the ravages of war in those areas, lies in the lack of knowledge of the Syrian Democratic Forces about the value of the inner wealth in the region and how to behave properly.

In the most environment and climate recent international reports, found that the north, and the northeastern Syria, suffer from the largest pollution rate in the air.

The surprising comes in the context of the report that classified pollution in the Syrian north more than pollution in the environment during the American war on Iraq to liberate Kuwait in 1991, and the percentage exceeds that of the American war on ISIS

Knowing that the battle swords have returned to their sheath in those areas, and there are no wars, conflicts, or explosions that may contribute to increasing this pollution.

Experts refer that the cause of pollution lies in the use of (SDF) for old, expired and outdated machines and equipment, which do not perform their tasks fully due to their emancipation and wear, and the absence of maintenance on them, and this leads to the emission of materials and gases in the space of the region.

In light of the inability of the Syrian regime to interfere in the region due to the American presence, the United States encouraged the Kurds to search for financial gains, not environmental, health or social, so that many things are reflected in this pollution, the most important of which is that crops and agricultural products in addition to fertile soil will be affected by what results from extracting Oil is used in a way that is used, and those who use and give up these products will also be affected, in addition to being affected by the inhalation of air in that region, which explains the high number of chest and cancer diseases in that region.

The major disaster, in addition to the regime’s inability to intervene, is to prevent international oil companies from interfering in Syrian territory for fear of the repercussions of Caesar’s law.

Most of the declared oil fields are located near the borders with Iraq and with Turkey. The governorate of Deir Ezzor contains the largest oil fields in the country, followed by Hasaka. The Omar field is the largest and most famous field in the country and is located in the countryside of Deir Ezzor. In addition to the wells and fields around it as the Ezzbah field, all of them are under the control of the “Syrian Democratic Forces”.

The Tanak field is considered the second largest oil field in Deir Ezzor, and is also controlled by the “Syrian Democratic Forces”.

The fields of Ward and Tim that are under the control of the regime in the west of the Euphrates produce little return, as they are a huge oil terminal coming from the Al-Omar and Tank fields, while there are other fields such as Al-Jafra and Koniko famous for producing gas, and the fields of Dero, Al-Jafra and Al-Kharath, and produce more than two thousand barrels today.
In Al-Hasakeh Governorate, there is the Rumailan field, which includes more than 1322 wells in addition to more than 25 gas wells. These fields are located in the areas of Al-Shaddadi, Al-Jibsa, and Al-Houl in the southern countryside of Hasaka, in addition to the fields located near the Merkada region and Tishreen Kebbeh in the western countryside of Hasaka, which is under the control of the SDF forces.
