Turkey’s cutting off water from Hasakah, North and East Syria leads to hundreds of poisoning cases

HASAKAH, Syria — More than a hundred cases of diarrhea, poisoning and skin diseases daily took place in Hasakah due to unsafe water.

All these cases resulted from the lack of a secure source of water and unknown water sources. The main source of water, which is the Alouk water station, is cut off by the Turkish occupation and its factions.

Amid the international silence, the Turkish-backed factions have been cutting off the water of the Alouk station, as part of the war against the regions of North and East Syria.

This is considered a humanitarian war crime, because the station feeds nearly a million people in Hasakah and its countryside.
