The Man-Made River Authority has denounced the targeting of its water system and the threat to national water security, after the Joint Force found an explosive device in one of the valve rooms in the water path.

The Authority explained on its Facebook page that during the joint force’s patrols to protect the water system, they found an explosive device ready to detonate in the air valve room located south of Al-Shwayrif water system on the water transport path from the Hassawna water system.

It also indicated that this is not the first time, as the 353 station in the eastern path of the Hassawna water system was previously bombed, praising the efforts of the Joint Force in protecting the components of the Man-Made water system.
