Iranian official: cut 7 billion cubic meters of water running towards Iraq

Wednesday, October 10,

(Reuters) -
An Iranian official announced on Wednesday the cutting of running water to Iraqi territory, estimated to amount to 7 billion cubic meters, further exacerbating the problem of water shortages and pollution already plagued by some Iraqi cities, mainly Basra .

Iran's deputy minister of agriculture, Ali Murad Akbari, said his country would cut about 7 billion cubic meters towards the western and northwestern borders of Iraq, ordered by Iranian leader Ali Khamenei.

He stressed that these quantities of water will be used in three major projects on an area of ​​550 thousand hectares in Khuzestan (southwest of the country), and 220 thousand hectares in Khuzestan also, and Ilam (West).

"The scarcity of water is one of the serious threats we face," he said.

The Kurdistan Regional Government said earlier that Iran "completely changed the course of the Karun River, and set up three large dams on the river Karkh, after these rivers are the main sources of water of the region and Iraq as a whole."

The low level of water in Iraq poses a real problem, especially after the impact of Iran's transformation of the tributaries to the cities and surrounding areas, especially Basra, which witnessed a massive demonstration since last July due to the crisis of water shortage and pollution and deterioration of services.

The drop in water levels from Turkey and Iran has led to concerns in Iraq that the Tigris water supply is half the amount after Turkey began operating the Elso dam, which was completed in January 2018.

Since June, salinity has increased Malhi) coming from the Arabian Gulf to the north of the Shatt al-Arab, the only source of water for the province of Basra.

Shatt al-Arab consists of the confluence of the Tigris and Euphrates rivers north of Basra. As a result of the decisions of Turkey and Iran, the water level in the river has decreased, allowing it to increase the reception of the salty Gulf waters.
