A water well in the southern field of the Al-Hasawna-Al-Jafara site has been vandalized, the Man-Made River Authority (MMRA) says.
The MMRA indicated in a statement that the (079) well is among the highest productive wells with a daily production of more than 5,000 cubic meters, noting that the well (241) was also subjected to a similar attack last week.
"Although support was provided, the battalion tasked to secure the water system failed to protect the project's components," the MMRA stated.
It further underscored that such attacks put the entire system at risk, and many cities and agricultural projects will be experiencing an interruption in water supplies if no action is taken.
