Syrians between Turkish anvil, US hammer: MoF
In a statement released on July 19, the Syrian Ministry of Foreign Affairs denounced the cutting of the water supply of more than a million Syrians in the city of Al Hasakah and its surroundings: describing it as a "crime against humanity".
The statement reads: "This represents a serious threat to public health, especially in light of the unprecedented heat wave which has struck the region. Water is being used as a weapon of war and a tool to achieve political ends."
"The people of the city of Hasakah and its surroundings are stuck between the anvil of the Turkish occupation and its mercenaries of terrorist gangs, and the hammer of the American occupation and its separatist stooges, who continue to cut off drinking water from the city and all the populated areas that extend along the water pipeline connecting Alouk station, eastern Al Hasakah."
The ministry also called on the UN to act decisively and effectively to stop this mass violation of the conventions and norms of international law, also stressing the need to ensure the resumption of pumping water "at full speed", and to enable technical teams to supervise its work and operation, which ensures that the people of Al Hasakah have access to drinking water.
