Al-Hasakah - SMART

Residents of Tal-Hamis city, 64 kilometers east of al-Hasakah, Northeastern Syria, complain about environmental problems that harm civilians' health and economy. The most significant problem is the oil waste pumped into the economically important al-Rad valley.

Izz Addin Ass’ad al-Musa, who is an engineer in Tal Hamis local council, told SMART that the waste in the valley smells bad and releases toxic gases that affect civilians. Al-Musa added that they contacted the parties responsible for the oil waste, but the council has not received a reply. Al-Musa noted the danger of pollution and diseases that spread from al-Rad valley. The oil waste is pumped into the valley from oil wells in al-Malikiay, al-Qahtaniya and Jaz’a.

Al-Musa noted that Tal Hamis local council has established a new landfill of 13 acres, located 1 kilometer from the highway. The cost of the landfill is twelve million three hundred thousand Syrian pounds.

In 2017, the medical clinic of Tal Hamis recorded 16,000 cases of leishmaniasis due to sand flies. Tal Hamis local council were unable to stop the spread of the disease.
