Tell Tamer (Arabic: تل تمر, Syriac: ܬܠ ܬܡܪ, Kurdish: Girê Xurma) also known as Tal Tamr or Tal Tamir, is a small town in the Qamişlo Canton, in the Jazira Region of the Democratic Federation of Northern Syria.
Originally inhabited by Assyrians in the early 20th century, a large minority of around 20% Assyrians remain in the town, living alongside a majority Kurdish, and a small, recently settled Arab Bedouin population.
In the 2004 census, Tell Tamer had a population of 7,285.
Located by the Khabur River at a major road junction, the town was an important transport hub for Syria.
So far, 11,804 fighters have died in the defense of Northern and Eastern Syria. New ones are added every day due to the attacks. The Council of the Families of Martyrs takes care of the relatives in eight committees and 199 municipalities.
Kevokê Dahir, a farmer in North and East Syria, thinks that Turkey's cutting off the water of the Khabur River as a global crime and calls on the human rights organizations to stop this crime.
The women living in Tell Tamer’s Tell Necma village play an important role in animal husbandry and agriculture while resisting the ongoing Turkish attacks.
65-year-old Caziya Ileyat, who has grown vegetables in her small garden located in the town of Tell Tamer, has been engaged in agriculture since her childhood. She uses dry animal dung as an alternative to fuel.
Turkey's decision to cut off the flow of water in the Euphrates River has resulted in nine water pumping stations in northern Syria being out of service, exacerbating the region's water crisis.
Despite the simple capabilities under the capitalist economy, and the constant attacks of the occupier on the regions of northeast and Syria, the economic toil of women has bore fruit to good results during 2020, as they played a leading role in easing the economic crisis that the region suffer from.
