Hasakah city without water for the fifth day due to attacks by mercenaries of the Turkish occupation

Repeated attacks by mercenaries of the Turkish occupation on electric power lines feeding Allouk water station in the occupied city of Ras Al-Ayn in Hasakah have left citizens in the province without water for the fifth consecutive day.

The Director of Hasakah Water Establishment Mahmoud Al-Okla said in a statement to SANA that the electric power line that comes from Al-Dirbasiyeh electrical substation to feed Allouk water station is still damaged because of attacks by Turkish-backed terrorist groups, causing the complete stoppage of Allouk station and consequently depriving around a million citizens in Hasakah and its western countryside from potable water.

 Al-Okla pointed out that the water establishment in cooperation with the Syrian Arab Red Crescent (SARC) in Hasakah as well as several humanitarian organizations continues to work as to meet the locals’ needs of drinking water through filing the water tanks distributed in the streets and gardens of the city until the water station re-operates.

This is the 27th time water supply to Hasakah city is cut off because of the stopping of Allouk station due to the Turkish occupation mercenaries’ attacks.
