Less than 20 hours after water supply was fully restored in the eastern Aleppo countryside, ISIS shut it down once more after a month-long outage in the Al-Khafseh area.

This region represents an area which has seen the Syrian Arab Army (SAA) capture over a dozen villages from ISIS in the past month; effectively, the water shutdown can be seen as a infrastructural way for the Islamic State to retaliate.

Nevertheless, Hussein Diad, the Governor of Aleppo, underlined in a statement that the Syrian Government was working at its utmost capabilities to restore the water supply and had set up plans of digging 51 new wells to secure clean water to local residents.

According to Hussein Diad, water supply was originally cut off by ISIS on January 14 in order to: “pressure the locals and influence their supportive stance towards the Syrian Army,”.

The water was back to Aleppo on Monday after intensive efforts made by the government in cooperation with the local community and the Syrian Arab Red Crescent, only to be cut off once again less than 24 hours after it was pumped back, the Governor added.
