US Dirty Tricks in Syria?
by Stephen Lendman
With three weeks left in office, Obama apparently intends continued US-led naked aggression on Syria, supporting ISIS, al-Nusra and other terrorist groups – adding more war crimes to his blood-drenched legacy.
Days earlier, RT reported Damascus was without water for five days. US-supported terrorists poisoned the Ein al Fija reservoir with diesel fuel and other toxins.
The supply had to be shut off to avoid a potential city-wide catastrophe. Residents able to obtain uncontaminated well water weren’t affected. Others are dependent on Water Authority distributed supplies or exorbitantly priced private sources.
Government help prevented disaster. After having no safe water for five days, one city resident said things now are easier.
On December 30, the Syrian Arab News Agency(SANA) reported the following:
“ISIS terrorists cut off water for Aleppo from its main source which is the treatment centers on the Euphrates River.”
“Director of Aleppo Water Company Fakher al-Hamdo said that at 6 AM on Friday, ISIS terrorists cut off water supplies to Aleppo city from the main source which is the Euphrates and al-Khafsa stations on the Euphrates River.”
“He said that Aleppo Governorate and the Water Company, in coordination with the Syrian Arab Red Crescent and civil sides, are working to address the situation and resume pumping water to the city as soon as possible.”
CIA operatives and their counterparts from NATO, Israel and other regional rogue states have been active on the ground throughout years of conflict – aiding ISIS, al-Nusra and other terrorist groups.
Are America and/or its rogue allies responsible for poisoning Damascus’ water supply and cutting it off for Aleppo?
Despite Putin’s announced ceasefire, conflict resolution has miles to go before any hope of achieving it. Much depends on Trump’s geopolitical agenda once in office.
If he’s against regime change and allies with Putin in combating terrorism, Syria’s liberation will be virtually certain. It’ll just take time.
