TURKISH ATTACK CUTS WATER SUPPLY TO SYRIA’S HASAKAH CITY
Turkish forces, on Tuesday, targeted the power line to a water station, in Syria’s north-eastern city of Hasakah, causing a water outage there.
Turkish forces bombed, before the day break, the Alouk water station, in the Ras al-Ayn area, 85 km north of Hasakah city, cutting the water supply to the city and its countryside.
Maintenance workers then rushed to the site, to fix the damage, to resume the water pumping, Electricity Minister, Muhammad Zuhair Kharbutli, said.
The workers’ vehicle was also attacked, on their way to the scene, the minister added.
The attacks came, two days after Turkish forces and Syrian rebels captured the city of Afrin, in northern Syria, after forcing the Kurdish fighters, who had been in control of that area for years, to withdraw.
Reports said, Ankara would continue its operations, against the Kurdish fighters, of the People’s Protection Units, in other areas, in northern Syria.
