Imad Tatriyan demanded International organizations and United Nations to intervene quickly to find a solution to the problem
of withholding and cutting off water by the Turkish occupation from the areas of north and east Syria."
For his part, Suleiman Hamo of the Yazidi component explained, "We are living in very tragic situations, since Turkey and its mercenaries' occupation of Serêkaniyê area and taking control of Allouk station, as they cut off water from the area from time to time."

As for Citizen Massoud Sido, he said: "Every time the Turkish occupation cuts off water from the area, our suffering
increases, and we face difficulty in sustaining life, so we resort to buying water from tanks."
