The spread of cancer and chronic bronchitis, asthma and deformity of fetuses and many other diseases in the areas of spread of burning.

The gas released from this burning can cause a suffocation of an employee that could lead to his death. The spread of carbon monoxide, arsenic gas and other toxic gases in the atmosphere causes these diseases.
Yasser Al Qasim, one of the owners of the burnings, said that at first they had to do work in the fire for a number of reasons, including the interruption of fuel and the lack of employment opportunities at the time and try to move away from the battlefield, but the damage of these time burnings began to fall on me at the present time I now suffer from cancer in lungs and I was burned several times. So, I advise everyone who works to keep away from them and leave them because symptoms will appear sooner or later.
