Foreign backed groups of mercenaries cut off the water supply in Aleppo

Residents of Syria’s second city Aleppo have been without water for a week because the armed terrorists who have cut off water supplies had cut off water supplies from a pump distributing to both, the terrorist-held east and the freed area in west Aleppo.

Last month, terrorist gangs already cut off the electricity supply in Aleppo and in the surrounding countryside.

But the gangs were unable to cut off water supplies to freed areas without also affecting the foreign backed mercenaries-held neighborhoods.




Syrian Foreign and Expatriates Ministry: “Cutting water off Aleppo by terrorists is collective punishment and crime against civilians”

Foreign and Expatriates Ministry said Monday that cutting water off Aleppo city by terrorists is a collective punishment to the locals for their rejection of the terrorist groups.

In two letters sent to the UN Secretary-General and UN Security Council’s President, the Ministry said that terrorists have been punishing, for nine days, three million persons because they renounced the crimes committed by the terrorists, adding that this act is yet another crime committed by the terrorist groups against the city’s civilians.

The Foreign Ministry added the terrorists have prevented the pumping of water through Suleiman al-Halabi station, which is the main source of drinking water in Aleppo, causing water to cut off the whole city for the 9th consecutive day, sending water to Quiq River and wasting it to prevent citizens from having clean water.

It affirmed this situation has created a big dilemma in getting water by citizens who were forced to seek it from the available resources including rivers and other undrinkable water which poses a threat to the citizens’ lives and warns of spreading epidemics among the residents.

“The Syrian government and the city’s authorities are exerting huge efforts to compensate part of the citizens’ demands of water with all available means and through urgent solutions,” the Ministry said.

It added that preventing water from Aleppo citizens as a collective punishment adds to crimes perpetrated by the armed groups against residents of the city, affirming that these crimes have targeted the civilians for the last months, whether through mortar shells, random rocket shells, which claims the lives of hundreds of civilians, or through breaking off the supplying roads into the city to prevent food and medicine from being delivered to the citizens in addition to cutting water and electricity off the whole city.

“Those crimes, including the collective punishment and acts of killing, abduction and torture, are being carried out at the hearing and sight of the UN and through a direct support by countries involved in the Syrians’ bloodshed without issuing any clear condemnation or a serious endeavor to put an end to those crimes and violations,” the letter said.

It added “what would be denounced is the UN and other human and international organizations’ continued silence towards those crimes and that human catastrophe in Aleppo, when, at the same time, we see some UN officials cry and rush to call for security Council sessions on any event to accuse the Syrian government under the pretext of their commitment to the humanitarian situations of the Syrians and the human rights in Syria.”

The Foreign Ministry went on to say that some international sides’ assertion to ignore responsibility of terrorism for the arising of humanitarian needs and their dealing, in a selective and politicized way, with the humanitarian situation in Syria come against principles of fairness or unbiased and encourage the armed terrorist groups to continue their crimes, under a direct support and political cover they receive from the countries involved in the Syrians’ bloodshed.

It concluded by saying that the Government of Syria, while putting those facts at the disposal of Security Council, hopes for a serious condemnation of that crime by Security Council and take immediate procedures to pressure countries which support terrorists in Syria to stop their crimes against residents of Aleppo and against the Syrian citizens.
