IRBID —Al Ghad— Dozens of youths blocked a mains street north Irbid with rocks, stones, and rubber tires in protest against the interruption of water supplies to their areas, as they have submitted multiple requests over the years to the Yarmouk water company to address the problem endured by the residents of the area of years.

Police personnel intervened and cleared the street.

On their side, the company responds with confirmation that a tender has been placed to conduct a comprehensive water network that would reinforce the supply to the area with the recurrent problem, at a total cost of JOD300 thousand.

Notably, the share of water per capita in Irbid receded 20 per cent over the past 5 years, after the 250 thousand Syrian refugees moved in.
