The Man-Made River Authority (MMRA) has temporarily shut off water supplies to several cities in the mountain region due to an emergency situation at the Abuzyan-Al-Rhaibat line.

An unidentified person attacked one of the valve rooms on the Abuzyan-Al-Rhaibat route and caused a major leak in a central line, the MMRA said in a statement Sunday.

The MMRA posted a video on its Facebook page showing water flowing from the broken pipe and flooding the area.

The valve had to be closed so the team could carry out their work, but this caused the pumping stations to cease operations, the MMRA explained.
