The SDF and their local councils prevent local and international organizations from forming any civil defense teams, or firefighting bridges in the areas they control eastern Euphrates.
Yesterday, Thursday, a fire broke out in agricultural lands in eastern Gharibah village in the eastern Deir Ezzor countryside, where people were able to put out the fire after so much effort.
Fires have broken out many times in a number of agricultural areas in the eastern Deir Ezzor countryside, where people have been forced to put out the fires themselves as there are no fire brigades.
The SDF prevent the formation of civil defence teams, arguing that these teams are linked to the Syrian Civil Defence organization, known as the “White Helmets.”
The SDF have prevented several organizations from forming such body, fearing that it would be linked to the civil defence organization operating in the Syrian opposition areas.
However, the SDF and its local councils reject the people’s demands to form local firefighting teams, even if they were affiliated with the local councils.
It is noteworthy that the people of Deir Ezzor countryside suffer from the absence of fire brigades and are forced to put out the fires themselves, as there is no other alternative.
