The administration of the Man-made River Authority has said that a sabotage attack on the eastern field of Al- Hasawna water system put three wells out of service.

"After three months and over, of stability in the water system, and despite the awareness campaigns and appeals, power lines feeding the equipment in the eastern field were deliberately cut in a sabotage attack, putting several wells out of service," director of the MMRA media office, Tawfiq Shuwahdi said Tuesday.

Shuwahdi appealed to all security agencies to assume their responsibility towards protecting well fields, so as to ensure the continuous flow of water to cities and agricultural projects.
