MANBIJ- AKP authorities in Turkey cut off Euphrates River water from Tishrin Dam, consequently, ceasing the dam from generating electricity, and that resulted in depriving people from power.
People in North of Syria particularly in Kobanî canton and Manbij are suffering from cutting off the electricity as the Turkish government cut off Euphrates water which reduced water level in Tishrin Dam Lake, and therefore, the power cut off on many North Syria areas.
Since Friday night, the power totally has been cut off after ceasing Tishrin Dam from generating electricity. Soon, the management of Tishrin Dam released a statement and made the reasons of cutting off the electricity clear.
The statement contains the following:
“Due to the lack of water flowing from Turkey, and level of Tishrin Dam Lake lowering to minimum levels that could allow the station to work and generate, the Tishrin Dam station would be ceasing electricity generation starting from Thursday, 23 February till water flow and level in Tishrin Lake permits operating the generators”.
The administrative in services committee in Democratic Civil Administration in Manbij Muhammad Rasho said that they would insure fuel for people to operate generators in the city and neighboring villages to avoid the problem of cutting off, and Muhammad added “Turkey violated the international conventions of water and rivers energy by cutting off Euphrates water”.
The Turkish government cut off Euphrates Dam water many times from Syrian lands and that in the context of her battels and aggression against Syrian people.
