Armed group stops water pumping from Al-Hasawna site
The Manmade River system declared the stoppage of water flow through the pipes of Al-Hasawna-Al-Jafara site, feeding the north-west cities, since Saturday.
A statement posted on its Facebook page said “We demand that the official bodies in particular and the Libyan people in general protect this vital and important project, because tampering with it threatens the national security of the nation”.
This comes as a result of an attack by an armed group on Al-Hasawna site and the wells fields, demanding that it be stopped until the release of Mabrouk Hanish, who is detained in Tripoli.
