Turkish regime's mercenaries continue to deprive 1.000.000 residents in Syria's Hasaka from water

January 21, 2021

HASAKA, (ST)_The Turkish occupation forces and their mercenaries continue to deprive about a million citizens from Hasaka city and its western countryside from water, according to Director General of Water Institute Eng. Mahmoud Akla.

Eng Akla said that there is no justification for cutting water by the Turkish occupation forces and their mercenaries. 'There is no problem in the Alouk water station and new wells were invested in to ensure water.. The Turkish regime's act comes within the framework of violations, which it continuously carries out against residents of Hasaka province.

The Turkish occupation forces have stopped pumping water from the Alouk station more than 18 times since their illegal presence in the northern countryside of Hasakah at the end of October 2019.

On December 14, the Ministry of Foreign Affairs and Expatriates sent a letter to the Secretary-General of the United Nations and the President of the Security Council saying,

“ Following our previous letters regarding the Turkish violations and its serious and repeated attacks on the sovereignty and territorial integrity of the Syrian Arab Republic, we would like to draw your attention to the fact that the Turkish occupation once again has repeated its crime of cutting the water supply from the Alouk station, which is the main source for securing drinking water for more than a million people in the city of Hasakah and its residential communities.”

“ The number of those breaches until the date of sending this message has reached 17 since 9-10-2019, which is the date of Turkey's occupation of the Ras Al-Ain area, in which the Alouk station is located. The station has not been operated since 11-30-2020 until now, as part of a cheap Turkish policy and in an attempt to blackmail the Syrian government and put pressure on it, the Ministry said.
