Terrorists target electric power substation in Daraa

Daraa, SANA – In a new breach of the de-escalation zone agreement in the southern region, terrorist groups attacked the electric power substation of Khirbet Ghazaleh to the east of Daraa city.

A source at Daraa Electricity Company told SANA that the armed groups on Thursday targeted with a rocket shell the electric power substation of Khirbet Ghazaleh, causing power outage in Daraa city and to water pumping stations in al-Ashaari.

This has forced the company to stop supply through the substation and resort to an alternative reserve line and thus increasing electricity rationing hours, the source said.

The source added that the maintenance teams have immediately embarked on repair works to restore power in gradually.
