The Turkish occupation continues to deprive citizens in Hasaka of having access to potable water for the seventh day

 The Turkish occupation and its mercenaries continue to prevent the Syrian citizens in Hasaka city from having  access to drinking water by preventing water pumping from Allouk water station to the city for the seventh consecutive day, thereby threatening the lives of a million people.

Eng. Mahmoud Al-Okla, Director of the Hasaka Water Establishment told SANA reporter that the Syrian government in cooperation with the Syrian Arab Red Crescent (SARC) and the International  Committee of the Red Cross (ICRC) are intensifying efforts to ensure water to citizens in order to alleviate the impacts of the Turkish occupation's crime of cutting water supplies.

 He pointed out that the establishment is sparing no effort to ensure potable water to the houses in the city while Hasaka City Council operates special tankers to provide citizens with water for house use.

Al-Okla pointed out that continuous efforts are being made to bring in maintenance workshops into the Allouk station with the purpose of re-operating it and resuming water pumping to the water network.

This is the eighteenth time that the Turkish occupation cuts off drinking water for the people of Hasaka city and countryside, putting the lives of a million people at risk and depriving them of the basic elements of life.
