Syrian Minister of Water Resources Nabil al Hasan spoke to Sputnik about the condition of the water source called Ain el Fijeh in Damascus, which provided many people with water and later on was hit by the terrorists.
“After a full examination of the source we came to a conclusion that 85% of the buildings above the source such as the water pumping station, equipment and power grids are all damaged. The terrorists blew it up in three different places so the source Harush is completely destroyed now,” Hasan said.The minister further said that the water was allowed to flow through the river channel until the water supply resumed its work.
Later on, about 10 hours after the initiation of the repair, the pumps started pumping water into the water storage of Damascus.
The water samples were then taken for quality analysis. After the results come back, it will be decided whether to supply the water to the residents.
