Syrian Bombing Campaign Takes Out Water Supply For 3.5 Million
Nobody is taking credit for this air strike, but at least one bombing campaign in Syria conducted by the United States, France, Russia or the Syrian government was responsible for taking out a water treatment plant in Aleppo that pulls water from the Euphrates River to supply potable water to approximately 3.5 million Syrians. A representative of UNICEF complained that all sides continue to break the rules of war on a daily basis. Water pumping operations have been partially restored, but more than a million remain without access to water. The Syrian state news agency is blaming the U.S.-led air strikes for the attack on the water plant, while at least one group is blaming the Syrian government. How would Americans feel if several different countries took turns bombing our country on a daily basis in this fashion?
