The Iraqi water expert Mohammad Hnedy announced today that the Water Resource Ministry (WRM) plans to establish 32 water dams, according to a report from AK News.
The first stage of the designs are already completed.
“There is a concern that the project might cause tensions among the provincial governors and political leaders in Iraq,” he noted.
Iraq has faced drought from both main rivers, the Euphrates and the Tigris, due to the building of giant dams on the rivers by Turkey, Syria and Iran and the lack of rainfall in the previous years.
