The Man-made River Administration (MMRA) revealed in its annual report for 2018, published last Wednesday that the project has been exposed to 106 attacks during the year 2018.

The report pointed out that the major share of the attacks hit (Hassouna- Jafara) system with 42 attacks, which represents about 40%, and then comes (Ghadames-Zwara-Zawiyah ) with 36 attacks, that is around 34%.

The MMRA stressed that the ongoing conflict has affected the technical performance, which in turn, led to the instability of water production and caused an unprecedented inability in meeting water supply needs, as well as a significant reduction in the financial resources of the project.
