President al-Assad inaugurates Tal Hasel water pumping plant, Aleppo

Aleppo, SANA- President Bashar al-Assad inaugurated on Friday Tal Hasel water pumping plant in Aleppo countryside.

The water pumping will irrigate some 8,500 hectares of farmland in Aleppo’s southern plains and revive the Queq River that runs through several neighborhoods in Aleppo city.

President al-Assad stressed the importance of rehabilitating the entire engines of the plant, as it is an important part of the irrigation system in the agricultural plains of Aleppo, and underlined the need for a speedy rehabilitation of the remaining two engines of the plant to irrigate larger areas of agricultural land while continuing to supply factories and workshops in Sheikh Najjar industrial city with sufficient quantities of water.

President al-Assad had inaugurated this plant in 2008 as part of a large national project to irrigate the agricultural plains of Aleppo, but it went out of service in 2012 after the occupation of the area by terrorist organizations, which completely destroyed the plant.
