The mains supply to Damascus from the Ain al-Fijeh spring in the Wadi Barada region has been cut since December 22, after fighting damaged key pumping infrastructure, leaving 5.5 million people facing shortages.
Engineers have entered a damaged water pumping station and supplies will soon be restored to the Syrian capital, the governor of Damascus Countryside Province said on state television on Friday.
