Low water levels are seen in the Euphrates river, near Qere Qozaq controlled by Kurdish-led Syrian Democratic Forces, Syria, October 16, 2022. In Syria, levels at dams on the Euphrates have fallen by up to 5 metres, shrinking reservoirs and leaving farmers struggling to access the remaining water reserves.
