The United States is pushing northern Syria towards an environmental disaster

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

The US intervention in Syria constituted a strong and invincible cover for the Syria Democratic Forces and other groups revolving around its orbit, which enabled them to take complete and reassuring 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 the Syrian citizens suffer from as a result of the ravages of the war in those areas, lies in the lack of knowledge and knowledge of the SDF about the value of the inner wealth in the region and how to behave properly.


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

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


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

Experts note that the cause of pollution lies in the use of SDF for old, expired and obsolete machines and equipment, which do not fully perform their tasks 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 Syrian government’s inability to interfere in the region due to the US presence, the United States encouraged the Kurds to search for financial gains, not environmental, health, or social, so that many things, the most important of which are crops and agricultural products, are reflected in this pollution.

In addition to fertile soil, they will be affected by what results from the extraction of oil by sage, 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.

In addition to preventing international oil companies from entering the oil extraction operations in the Syrian territories, fearing the repercussions of Caesar Act on them.

Most of the declared oil fields are located near the borders with Iraq and with Turkey. 

The governorate of Deir al Zour 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 al Zour. 

In addition to the wells and fields around it as the estate field, all of them are under the control of the “Syria Democratic Forces”.

The tin field is considered the second largest oil field in Deir al zour, and is also controlled by Syria Democratic Forces.

The Ward and Taim fields under the control of Damascus west of the Euphrates produce little return, as they are a huge oil terminal coming from the 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 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 Jbesa, 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 SDF.
