Damascus continues to impose a heavy embargo on Şêxmeqsûd and Eşrefiye
The government of Damascus continues to impose a heavy embargo on the neighbourhoods of Şêxmeqsûd and Eşrefiye in Aleppo.
Many areas have been damaged, as well as the cutting of diesel. The lack of important materials creates major problems.
Due to the embargo imposed by the Damascus government on the neighbourhoods of Şêxmeqsûd and Eşrefiye, the People's Municipality is prevented from carrying out its work in many areas.
In addition to the great damage to the service area because of the lack of diesel, the ban on the passage of equipment parts is also a major obstacle.
People's Municipality Labor Department Executive member Mistefa Şahin said that they are experiencing great difficulties due to the embargo.
Providing information on the municipality's reason for suspending service activities, Şahin told ANHA that the work stopped because a lot of equipment needed to be replaced but was not allowed to enter the neighbourhoods.
Şahin added: “Since the embargo has become heavier, we have been facing many difficulties and problems. The service industry has suffered because the vehicles are old and need replacing. But the Damascus government does not allow the parts to come into the neighbourhoods.”
Şahin said that many projects propose by the municipality were not realized as planned because of the lack of diesel.
