UN chief condemns water cut in Syria's Aleppo

Published: 05.17.14, 13:36 / Israel News

The United Nations chief has condemned a cut in water supplies in the northern Syrian city of Aleppo that he said has deprived at least 2.5 million people of access to potable water.


UN Secretary-General Ban Ki-moon said that preventing people access to safe water denies them a "fundamental right." In a statement released by his office late Friday, Ban noted that denying civilians essential supplies is a breach of international and humanitarian law. (AP)
