The main pipeline supplying potable water in the northern Syrian city of Aleppo was damaged in clashes between the Free Syrian Army and the forces of the Assad regime, said the London based Syrian Human Rights Organization on Saturday.
Activists in Aleppo said that 3 million Aleppo residents may have to live waterless for sometime due to the damaged potable water pipeline.
While some sources said that the water pipeline was damaged due to an air attack by the Syrian army, a Syrian official argued that armed groups staged a sabotage against the water pipeline.
Aleppo has been the site of fierce clashes between the Free Syrian Army and the Syrian forces loyal to Assad since July.
