The Manmade River Authority (MMRA) announced that unknown assailants attacked a well in the western field, causing it to be knocked completely out of service.

The MMRA stated on its official Facebook page on Sunday, that the total number of strikes on wells has reached 149, rendering them inoperable, whilst referring to its repeated demands for provision of security and protection for the wells, in order to limit the attacks, however, no response has been forthcoming so far.

The MMRA renewed its stark warning that the continued attacks on the wells would, most certainly impede operations and interfere with the water flow to several regions.
