Thirst threatening 1 million people in Syria’s Hasakah due to cutting water by Turkish forces

Intense thirst threatens the lives of about one million people living in and around Syria’s northeastern city of Hasakah, as Turkish troops and allied militants continue cutting off drinking water supplies to the region by stopping a major border pumping station, a report says.

Syria’s official news agency SANA on Monday briefly but bitterly recounted the suffering of these people, who are in desperate need of drinking water in hot summer days in the northeastern province of the same name.

A day earlier, Director General of Hasakah Water Company Mahmoud al-Ukla said Turkish soldiers and militants backed by the government in Ankara had stopped Alouk Water Station on Saturday evening and that they had barred workers of the station from entering the facility.
