BEIRUT  - The water supply to Syria's Afrin town has been cut off for a week after a change in control of a key dam, the U.N. office for humanitarian affairs said on Wednesday.

Fighting there has forced thousands of people to flee their homes within the northern Afrin region and towards government territory, it said. Turkey launched an offensive on Syria's Afrin in January, targeting Syrian Kurdish forces that control the region.
