The Euphrates River, Syria’s longest river, is drying up and raising concerns as millions of people in Syria are losing access to water, food and electricity, from the demise of the river that can lead to a humanitarian disaster.
More than five million people in Syria directly depend on the Euphrates River. As the river is the main source of clean drinking water for people.
It also produces electricity as well from hydroelectric power for about three million people in Syria.
But aid groups and engineers say that rising temperatures, lower rainfall and drought across the region are gradually depriving people of drinking water and agricultural water.
Which this also disrupts electricity generation as dams run low and out, which in turn affects the operation of basic infrastructure including health facilities.
Farmers in Syria have been financially affected as the creeping drought affects their agricultural land with them saying they are thinking of leaving because there’s no water left to drink or to irrigate their land.
Humanitarian groups in Syria also have indicated that two out of three drinking water stations along the river have been pumping less water or have stopped working altogether.
Iraq also faces the same situation with the loss of access to water from the river and the drought also threatens at least seven million people there. The drought in both countries has been the worst in recent years.
Syria has only received 50 to 70 per cent of normal rainfall over the past two years threatening millions of people. As people in both Syria and Iraq, are directly dependent on the Euphrates.
The Biblical prophecies (Matthew 24, Luke 21, Revelation 16) foretell that the water of the Euphrates River will dry up preparing the way for powerful nations from the east to come to the battle of Armageddon signaling the world is nearing the end of this age and the coming of Jesus Christ.
These events and conditions happening now are warning signs pointing to the nearing fulfillment of the Last Days prophecies at the end of this age revealing it’s time to prepare now for the nearing appearance of Jesus Christ for His Church by being born again spiritually into the Kingdom of God as Jesus said we must (John 3) and His Apostles who were authorized (Matthew 16:19) described how (Acts 2).
