DAMASCUS, SYRIA (2:40 P.M.) – For the first time in two years, the residents of Aleppo will have consistent running water after the Syrian Arab Army (SAA) finally expelled the jihadist rebels occupying the Suleiman Al-Halabi Water Pumping Station.

Shutting off water to the residents of government-held Aleppo was one of the ways that the jihadist rebels would punish the civilians for not backing their forces.

Over time, the Syrian government would find ways to work around this problem; however, their fixes were always temporary and limited to certain neighborhoods.

With the Suleiman Al-Halabi Water Pumping Station under their control, the Syrian government can supply water to over 1 million residents in Aleppo, ending one of the biggest problems plaguing the city.

      • More armored guys means more risks they have to take in the battle, i guess. But what i have no idea at all, who is responsible of SAA soldiers outfit. They look as if they are fine w/o it. But i have seen on video they get stupid scratches in the head and get busy healing it.
        Are they so sure Allah takes care of every one of them, at least of those who does not use helmet?
