The loss of water is a real crisis for Afrin

     In 24\1\2018  Al-Maydenka Dam, the main and only source that provides Afrin city by clean and drinkable water, was targeted by the turkish airstrikes. The targeting on the big generators, the main pumbs and the fuel tanks led to a huge shortage in watre in Afrin city, creating a serious crisis in finding drinkable water. So, people started to buy water tanks from the artesian wells. The crisis led people to worry about the problem of finding new alternatives to get water to the city, since most of the artesian wells are not safe for drinking. There are not also other reserving tanks for conserving water.

So we can say that Afrin is  in a very serious crisis that requires immediate action from the specialised organisations around the world.
