Damascus, Oct 3 (Prensa Latina) The Syrian Ministry of Foreign Affairs reiterated its strong condemnation of the Turkish government for depriving more than a million inhabitants of the al-Jazira region, in the northeast of this Levantine nation, of drinking water.

The residents of the city of Hasakeh and the communities around it have not had access to water for more than two months, which constitutes a criminal, inhumane and immoral act, the Syrian Foreign Ministry said in a statement.

He explained that the Turkish forces illegally present in the country and the local extremist militias that operate under their command prevent the operation of the water plant in the city of Ras al-Ain that is under their control, considering that it is the main source of this liquid.

According to the statement, the failure of the United Nations and its organizations to condemn these hostile actions puts their credibility at stake.


Ignoring this crime by the human rights plaintiff exposes his real agendas and double standards, he denounced.

The Syrian authorities denounce that the continuation of such a cut off of the vital liquid would lead to human disasters and pandemics, and assure that Ankara reduced to a minimum the level of the water resource that flows to Syria from the Euphrates River, considered the main source of drinking water and for the irrigation for the entire northeastern region.
