Syria has said that the ongoing bombing forces of the international coalition against terrorism areas near the dams on the rivers Euphrates and Tigris can lead to disaster. The corresponding message, Deputy Permanent Representative of Syria to the UN Munzera Munzera sent to the Secretary General of the international organization, António Guterres, reports "Interfax".
"Complete destruction of these dams, which are targets of air strikes, can drain from the face of the earth and flood towns and villages, strikes threatened the lives of hundreds of thousands of people living in these areas", - the document says.
The Syrian government has urged Guterres and UN Security Council to urge the United States and members of the coalition to stop the attacks against dams on the Euphrates and the Tigris, the immediate area and their infrastructure "in order to avoid the impending catastrophe."
The coalition led by the United States carries out air strikes on the positions of the terrorists in Syria in September 2014 years.
