According to Reuters, the Damascus authorities have had to cut water supplies in the Syrian capital and use reserves instead. The government said on Friday that militants polluted the water with diesel.
Damascus is supplied with water from the al-Fija spring in Wadi Barada valley controlled by jihadists and situated northwest of the capital near the Lebanese border.
SANA agency, citing Muhammed al-Sheyyah, the head of Water Supplies Department, reported that the city was still forced to use reserves. However, the situation is expected to turn for the better within a couple of days.
