Turkey exploits water to pressure both Kurds and Iraqis, while Houthis in Yemen monopolizes the gas, leaving Yemenis to suffer for days to get their cars fueled. In this report, we shall focus on the means of using both water and gas as new weapons to pressure peoples.<span class="Apple-converted-space">\u00a0<\/span>\r\n<h2><span style="color: #ff0000;">Turkey seizes Water Weapon Card<\/span><\/h2>\r\nWater war has become the stage title, and the water weapon is the most dangerous in Turkey's hands, especially in terms of its neighbors Iraq and Syria. The self-administration of northern and eastern Syria renews its accusations against Turkey of cutting the waters of the Euphrates River from the Syrians.\r\n\r\n<img class="aligncenter size-large wp-image-137008" src="https:\/\/see.news\/wp-content\/uploads\/2020\/07\/Screen-Shot-2020-07-10-at-6.04.31-PM-1024x464.png" alt="Special Report: Yemen, Turkey...

Gas vs. Water Weapon" width="720" height="470" \/>\r\n\r\nThe Ilisu Dam has caused the Iraqi share of river water to decline, and the decline may reach 60 percent due to the operation of electricity generators on this dam. It is one of the 22 dams of the Southeastern Anatolia Project and its purpose is hydroelectric power production, flood control, and water storage\r\n\r\nTurkey's practices regarding the waters of the Tigris and Euphrates rivers are in conflict with international laws, especially the two international conventions of 1966 and 1997 of the last century, and also with the bilateral agreements it signed with both Syria and Iraq.\r\n<h2><span style="color: #ff0000;">Yemenis\u2019 Fuel Crisis<span class="Apple-converted-space">\u00a0<\/span><\/span><\/h2>\r\nMany cars line up in front of petrol stations for about a month in the rebel-held areas of Yemen, amid severe fuel shortages that have severe repercussions for the population after years of arduous war.\r\n\r\nThe fuel crisis is not a new thing in Yemen, which has been mired in daily fighting since 2014, but the crisis has started to amplify recently while the poor country is going through the worst humanitarian crisis in the world, according to the United Nations, exacerbated by the outbreak of the novel coronavirus.\r\n\r\n<img class="aligncenter size-full wp-image-137011" src="https:\/\/see.news\/wp-content\/uploads\/2020\/07\/153768252261556600.jpg" alt="Special Report: Yemen, Turkey... Gas vs. Water Weapon" width="855" height="495" \/>\r\n\r\nYemen has been experiencing an armed conflict since July 2014 when the<a href="https:\/\/see.news\/arab-coalition-in-yemen-egypt-condemn-houthi-militia-attack-on-saudi\/"> Houthi rebels<\/a> launched an offensive toward the capital, Sanaa, and other areas, before escalating in March 2015, with Saudi Arabia intervening at the head of an Arab alliance in support of the government to stop the advance of the Houthis accused of receiving support from Iran.\r\n\r\nSince the coalition operations began, thousands of civilians have been killed in Yemen, while more than 3.3 million people have been displaced from their homes.\r\n\r\n<img class="aligncenter size-full wp-image-137012" src="https:\/\/see.news\/wp-content\/uploads\/2020\/07\/unnamed-2-1.jpg" alt="" width="512" height="288" \/>\r\n\r\nThe government and the Saudi-led coalition accuse the rebels of causing fuel shortages in an attempt to press for the lifting of the blockade imposed on them, but the Houthis claim that the coalition is preventing fuel from reaching their areas in order to strangle them economically.\r\n\r\nCivilians find themselves stuck amid daily accusations, with international organizations warning that fuel has become a weapon of war.\r\n\r\nThe price of a liter of fuel reached 1,200 Yemeni riyals, equivalent to two dollars, which is three times the previous price.
