3rd Waterless Day for Damascus Over Contamination

Residents of the Syrian city of Damascus faced their third consecutive day without water on Sunday after the city’s supply was poisoned.
Authorities cut off the capital city’s pipeline following reports that militant groups had contaminated water supplies with diesel.
The al-Fija spring, which supplies fresh water to Damascus, lies next to the militant-controlled town of Ein al-Fijeh, in the mountainous Wadi Barada area, Deutsche Welle reported.
Daily news outlet Al-Watan, which is affiliated to the Syrian government, accused groups of “contaminating the water resources into Damascus with pollutants and diesel.”
The Damascus Water Supply and Sewage Authority said in a statement it had halted supplies following “terrorist attacks on all water resources feeding into Damascus and its surroundings.”
