The head of government also inaugurated the main water pumping station in the municipality of Almayadín, which guarantees this vital fluid for 135,000 people, with the possibility of increasing its capacity to serve half a million residents.

It has also reopened, reconstructed and equipped the telecom centers in the towns of Buqrus and Al-Boleel and inaugurated several parts of the industrial zone east of Deir Ezzor.
