Turkey's action to block water on Hasaka citizens is a war crime: Syria

The Syrian Foreign Ministry on Monday condemned Turkey's actions against the Syrian people and government, including the re-cutting of water on more than a million people in the northeastern Hasakah province.

Iran PressMiddle East: In separate letters to the UN Secretary-General and the President of the UN Security Council, the Syrian Foreign Ministry called the Turkish water cut on more than one million people in Hasakah and surrounding areas a clear violation of international law and called for an immediate Security Council response.

In the letters, the Syrian Foreign Ministry said that Turkey had taken such action 17 times so far, in line with Ankara's efforts to tribute the Syrian government and put pressure on Damascus.

Turkey and its backed terrorists have long cut off drinking water to people in the northeastern Syrian province of Hasakah.

Areas in northern Syria are also currently occupied by the Turkish army.

The crisis in Syria began in 2011 with a massive offensive by terrorist groups backed by Turkey, Saudi Arabia, the United States, and their allies to shift the regional equation in favor of the Israel regime.
