The provincial council of Sulaymaniyah on Thursday warned of poisoning the source of drinking water in the area of ​​"Sarchinar" in the center of the city after the approval of the Governorate of the construction of a fuel station near it.

"Unfortunately, the majority believed that building this station would damage the water source in this region," said Rekawt Zaki, deputy chairman of the oil and energy committee in Sulaymaniyah province.

"Unfortunately, once again Sulaymaniyah province has made a mistake by granting permission to build the station," he said.

For his part, Mahdi Mahmoud deputy chairman of the provincial council of Sulaymaniyah said that neighboring countries are buying water from the Kurdistan Region, but unfortunately we are working to pollute it.
