Turkish occupation once again cuts off drinking water supplies to about million people in Hasaka

 Hasaka, SANA- Turkish occupation forces and their terrorist mercenaries continue their violation against the locals in Hasaka through cutting off drinking water from Hasaka city and reducing the number of wells and pumps there.

In a statement to SANA, the General Director of Hasaka Water Establishment Mahmoud Ukla said that the Turkish occupation forces and their mercenaries stopped pumping drinking water in Alluk station, which threatens the lives of about one million people who depend on the station in securing drinking water as it is the only source of it.

Ukla indicated that the Turkish occupation deliberately reduced the number of running wells to 8 ones instead of 20 and operated only one pump instead of 6 ones, at least, which led to reduction in the amount of water pumped to the main water tanks.

He added that the Turkish forces also prevented workers of the establishment from entering the station for maintenance works to operate the station with its usual capacity.
