BEIRUT, LEBANON (4:30 P.M.) – Water from the Euphrates River has officially reached the city of Aleppo for the first time in years after the Syrian Arab Army liberated the strategic town of Al-Khafsa in the eastern part of the province.

Traveling some 80km west, water from the Euphrates River reached the Suleiman Al-Halabi Pumping Station inside the city, causing several thousand civilians to celebrate the end of this three year long crisis.

Reports emerging as early as Monday alleged that the water and electricity from the liberated eastern territory of Aleppo would be not only provided to the provincial capital, but also, the Kurdish-controlled city of Menbeij and its surrounding villages.

On Tuesday, Syrian Army officials confirmed the agreement between the Kurdish-led Syrian Democratic Forces (SDF) and Syrian Government to provide water and electricity to Menbeij.
