The Man Made River Authority (MMRA) reported that a number of water wells in Hasawna area in Sahil Jafara were raided by people described as criminals and vandals.

The MMRA said in a statement that the number of wells sabotaged stands at 15.

“The attack included the theft and destruction of equipment from inside the control rooms and the wrecking of electrical wiring,” it added, pointing out that this particular location was the least effected by aggressive attacks in the past, as it is located in the center of the fields.

The MMRA went on to say that this attack is a serious indication that there may follow a stoppage of water flow.
