To ask Her Majesty's Government what representations they have made to the government of Turkey about the reported closure of the water treatment facility at Alok in north east Syria by the Turkish Armed Forces.
18 March 2020
Department for International Development officials raised the need to protect water supply in Syria, including the Alok facility, with the Government of Turkey during Operation Peace Spring in October 2019. After some disruption to the water supply recently, we understand that the facility has now been re-opened. The British Government continues to support UN and INGO partners to help those in need in north east Syria.
