A video circulated on social media platforms showing a main water pipe exploding on the Airport Road in Amman.
Social media users said the water pipe has broken near Al Nakheel neighborhood.
The explosion of this water pipe comes at a time when pumping from the Disi Water Conveyance Project, one of the Kingdom’s strategic water resources, was partially suspended, affecting Amman, Zarqa and the northern governorates of the Kingdom.
Water pumping from Disi Water stopped after a group of unknown vandals sabotaged a facility that stores water from the project’s wells in Mudawarrah, Maan Governorate.
