Water crisis | Water cut-off continues in Al-Hasakah city and countryside for ten days, as Turkish forces hinder maintenance work in Allouk station
Al-Hasakah Province – Syrian Observatory for Human Rights: Al-Hasakah city and some areas in its countryside are still suffering from drinking water cut-off for the tenth consecutive day because of malfunction in Allouk water purification station in Ras Al-Ain city (Sere Kaniye). Meanwhile, Turkish forces prevent any worker to access to the station to fix the electrical malfunctions.
On January 18, SOHR sources said that Turkish forces suspended pumping of water supplying Al-Hasakah city and its western countryside once again, after power outage in Allouk water purification station in Ras Al-Ain countryside following the increase of the number of wells in the station. Meanwhile, the Autonomous Administration was preparing a new power line from Al-Tabaqah to provide the station with electricity. On the other hand, Turkish forces prevented workers from accessing to the station since the previous day for unknown reasons.
