Reports of weekend attacks by Turkey’s military on water supplies in an offensive against Kurdish units in the Afrin region prompted fresh condemnation from the United Nations spokesman Stephane Dujarric told reporters on Monday.
"The condemnation over and over again which, is unfortunately unheeded, [is] to stop the destruction of civilian infrastructure," Dujarric said. "We’ve seen in Syria water being used as a tool of war. These [acts] are unacceptable. These are clear violations of international law."
Dujarric was responding to a reporter’s question about local media reports over the weekend that Turkish forces had bombed a water treatment plant while battling Kurdish People’s Protection Units (YPG) forces in the Afrin region.
