1/ Around 800,000 people in #Hasakah and its surrounding villages in northeast Syria have been deprived of drinking water after Turkey-backed Syrian opposition factions cut off supply from the main water pump since August 1st.
2/ Enwer Suleiman, a resident of Hasakah, said:
“We have been suffering from water shortages for years. It’s not the first time Turkey cut our water and won’t be the last. The water used to be cut off for fewer days, but now it’s been 25 days straight."
3/ "People can’t afford to buy water from other sources because it’s expensive and the economy is deteriorating. We spend hours standing in long queues under the burning sun waiting for our turn to get a few liters of water from wells, which are unsafe to use."
4/ "Coronavirus is spreading in our area but we don’t have the water for the constant washing and disinfecting needed to protect ourselves.”
5/5 Using water as a weapon of war is a heinous crime. Turkish authorities must immediately restore water access to Hasakah. Turkish and Kurdish authorities & UN agencies must ensure water, electricity, and other vital services and resources reach all residents in NE Syria.
