Because of the fact that the militants from terrorist groups seized the strategically important water source in Wadi Barada, which is located on the border with Lebanon, residents of the capital are suffering without water for three days.
The terrorists poured diesel fuel into a source. Then the authorities in Damascus had to turn off the water supply to prevent mass poisoning of civilians.
It should be mentioned that people in Damascus are regularly without electricity. However, citizens admit that being without water is much more difficult. Now there are 4.5 million people live in Damascus and its suburbs.
