The local council in the town of Rastan in northern rural Homs began the implementation of new projects to repair roads and the sewage network in the FSA-held town.
“The current projects aim to repair sewage network and drinking water systems, but the top priority remains to repair public roads which have been badly damaged,” said head of the council Yousuf Darwish. He added that the regime’s bombardment targets mainly vital civilian facilities and infrastructure.
Darwish pointed out that these projects were developed to restore service institutions in accordance with professional standards as well administrative and financial systems supervised by the council. The projects will be implemented despite the scarce resources in the town, he added.
Darwish called upon all the donor bodies to contribute to these projects, pointing out that the council is ready to carry out all the service and administrative work necessary to restore services in the town.
The Syrian Interim Government (SIG), in cooperation with Homs provincial local council and Assistance Coordination Unit (ACU), on Friday said it managed to provide drinking water for residents of the besieged town of Talbeesa in rural Homs.
The town suffered water outage resulting from bombardment by regime forces on pumping stations and declining groundwater reserves in the area. (Source: Syrian Coalition’s Media Department + Smart News Network)
