On Wednesday, a solar energy system project for water pumping stations was inaugurated in the town of Al-Bab in the Aleppo countryside, as part of development initiatives in the liberated areas. This project, funded by the Syria Recovery Trust Fund, aims to address the long-standing and severe water crisis in the region.
The inauguration ceremony was attended by prominent figures, including the Vice President of the Syrian Opposition Coalition (SOC), Abdul Majeed Barakat, the Head of the Syrian Interim Government, Abdurrahman Mustafa, and the engineers responsible for overseeing the project’s implementation.
Barakat highlighted that the project operates on solar energy and was supervised by Syrian engineers. He emphasized that the launch of this project will significantly improve the living conditions of the local population by ensuring access to essential water resources.
Barakat further pointed out that the Assad regime had pursued deliberate policies aimed at depriving the region’s inhabitants of opportunities for development, resulting in years of water scarcity.
He also acknowledged that while this project is a step in the right direction, it alone cannot fully meet the needs of the liberated areas in northern Syria. Therefore, the region requires large-scale development projects to restore vitality. Consequently, the SOC and the Syrian Interim Government are engaging with various stakeholders to promote comprehensive development in these areas.
Barakat commended the national engineers who successfully oversaw the project, considering it a crucial initial step toward the complete revitalization of the liberated northern region. This includes ensuring access to water and establishing clean and solar energy solutions in the area.
