For 4th time, the Turkish occupation cuts water to Al-Hasakah

The Turkish occupation ceased pumping water from Alouk station for the fourth time to the city of Hasaka, since the occupation of Serekaniye.

The Turkish occupation tries to undermine the will of the people which reject all occupation policies by all means.

Today, for the fourth time since the occupation of Serekaniye, the Turkish occupation stopped pumping water from Alouk station to the city of Hasakah and its countryside.

In this context, the co-chair of the Directorate of Water in Hasakah canton, Suzdar Ahmed said in a statement to our agency: The Turkish occupation drove the workers of the plant out of it, and put it off without knowing the reasons.

On 23 March, the United Nations Children's Fund (UNICEF) confirmed that pumping water from Alouk water station, located in Turkey-occupied areas, would endanger 460,000 people, and expressed its refusal to use the water facilities for political and military gains.

The United Nations and the International Committee of the Red Cross said on Tuesday that an immediate ceasefire was needed across Syria to enable efforts to eliminate the Corona virus and prevent it from destroying the besieged population, a day after the United Nations Children's Fund issued its statement.

Of note, Alouk Station is considered a strategic station, as it feeds the entire city of Hasakah and its countryside with water.
