For eighth time since they took control of the station | Turkish forces cut off drinking water to Al-Hasakeh city and countryside
Reliable sources have informed the Syrian Observatory for Human Rights that Turkish forces stopped pumping drinking water in “Aluk” in the countryside of Hasakeh, without knowing the reasons.
In the meantime, negotiations are under way between Russians and Turks to re-pump drinking water into the area that supplies the city of Hasakeh and other areas in countryside of the city.
This comes as part of repeated pressure on residents in the SDF-held areas, for the eighth time since Turkish forces took control of the station in the northern countryside of Hasakeh.
On the other hand, residents of al-Aziziya, Al-Azl, Al-Salhiya, Al-Mufti, Al-Tala’a, Khashman and Dahiya have been suffering from water shortages for about 12 days, while water has been reaching the rest of the city for only a few hours, but many residents have not been able to get enough drinking water.
On July 10, reliable sources told SOHR that Turkish forces re-pumped water to Allouk water purification station which supplies Al-Hasakah city and surrounding areas with drinking water. Only a few pumps out of 30 ones have been re-activated, providing drinking water to Al-Hasakah city and countryside days after water supply had been cut off.
